Oh, the joy of it! Digging, planting, observing, watering, nurturing, discovering, protecting — gardening is a lifelong opportunity to connect with our natural world. Young children who delight in eating what they grow are creating their own commitments to Mother Earth; their joys are our hope. So to celebrate World Forum International Mud Day, ECD professionals from around the world joined WoFo Global Café and Bishnu Bhatta, Mr. Mud Day, himself. Bishnu and guests shared their stories and strategies for gardening with children—and, of course, with Bishnu among us, we talked all things mud!
