Product Description


With their infectious enthusiasm for being outside and getting dirty, kids can be terrific garden companions.  This inspiring guide offers simple, practical advice as it takes you step-by-step through more than 100 engaging, family-friendly garden activities.  With The Book of Gardening Projects for Kids, everyone can enjoy a garden's delicious rewards year round as children develop a deep connection to nature and the outside world.

Many Gardeners find that once they have children, gardening goes the way of late-night dinner parties and Sunday morning sleep-ins: right out the window.  Raising kids and maintaining a garden can be a juggling act and, at times, a family's garden may be forgotten or neglected.  In The Book of Gardening Projects for Kids, we hope to make it easier for you to merge the garden into your family life, to engage your children in various aspects of your outdoor spaces, and to manage your family garden, no matter its scope or scale.  Whether you're playing leapfrog over pumpkins, harvesting a six-plant-part burrito, cooking up a compost cake, weaving lavender wands, or pickling pears, the fun-filled memories with your children will last a lifetime.
