Gardening with Kids

One major activity I looked forward to with my Grandma was working in her wonderful gardens. She taught me how to plant seeds and take care of the seedlings. She taught me how to thin out and transplant the little plants. She taught me to know the difference between weeds and flowers. She taught me how to recognize a vegetable plant by its leaves. I learned patience in harvesting at the right moment. I learned joy in arranging flowers in vases. Gardening was definitely an every day activity to her that was magical to me.

www.grandparents.com’s article is a how-to to provide the same experience to your kids and grandkids.

Dry Creek Garden in Reno, NV has some fun ideas for different gardens for the children to plan.

The Colorado Master Gardeners website also has great information.

The University of Illinois Extension has a guide as well.
