BEMIDJI – The Bemidji Early Childhood Initiative has given Nature’s Edge Garden Center the Early Childhood Champion award for its efforts to provide a family friendly environment to young children.

Early Childhood Champions is a continuing project, recognizing local businesses that support young children and their families.

Children and families are welcome to come and explore the garden center. Nature’s Edge also welcomes field trips for young children to discover the stages from seed to flower.

The business was also a donor for “The power of the purse,” a fundraiser for ECI to fund projects supporting Bemidji’s youngest children.
