Gardening with kids

Gardeningwithkidscover Here's a helpful, free report about encouraging kids to get involved in gardening, courtesy of Doug Green at Simple Gifts Farm.

Lots of other resources on this topic are available on the web, but I was just made aware of this one through my connection with the Garden Writers Association.

Getting kids involved in gardening offers a whole host of benefits, fun and teaching opportunities.

Says Don Shor of Redwood Barn Nursery:

"Kids and gardening are a natural combination. There's dirt, it's messy, the textures are interesting; you can grow food; there are bright colors, interesting smells, even some water play. Kids like to garden until it becomes a chore, or has too many rules."

Sounds like fun to me.
