The Scholastic Root-Vue Farm offers a fun way to teach children about the benefits of 'slow food.' They are able to watch root vegetables including carrots, radishes and beets grow right before their very eyes. The fact that they will be able to sample these produce, which they had a hand in cultivating, is an exciting added benefit.

As though inspired by classic ant farms, the Scholastic Root-Vue Farm is interactive, productive and immersive. It comes with a growing box with sturdy acrylic, viewing window, 3 packets of fast growing seeds (carrot, radish & onion), instructions, experiments and growing chart. An excellent gift for any young horticulture enthusiast, parents are sure to get into it as well.
