Exposure to nature is critical for childhood development. It encourages creativity, problem solving, reduces anxiety, and can enhance academic performance. Turn Back Time in Paxton, MA offers farm and nature-based programs for children. Opportunities for learning are limited in the winter months, when crops are unable to grow. We engineered a water storage and delivery system for a greenhouse under construction to extend the growing season and learning opportunities. We developed STEM educational materials to expand learning in the greenhouse.
