grow me safely
AWARD WINNING WEB RESOURCE
Kidsafe NSW was the winner of the 2014 Nursery & Garden Industry Awards - Industry Innovation Award category for the ‘grow me safely’ website resource!
Kidsafe NSW recognises the importance of gardening with children to build life skills, inspire creativity, grow and harvest food, role model safe practices and a respect for nature.
‘grow me safely’ was developed to provide information for educators, parents and carers to engage children in gardening activities. The information provided is supported by injury data and statistics.
Gardening with children is promoted in the National Quality Framework for Education and Care Services, and the NSW Primary Syllabus.
To use the website, click on the 'grow me safely' sign above, locate the green watering can at the bottom of the web page and slide it from left to right to reveal the elements of the website.
