Gardening with Kids
The best thing you can do to help young children learn to garden is to allow them to watch you work, invite them to give it a try, and offer guidance as needed. No pushing or forcing.
Give your child time to watch and learn and one day you might find an eager worker bee at your side. It also may not be something that interests them, and that's okay too.
We believe in the magic of childhood, the power of the imagination, learning through play, and getting outside in all seasons!
