Gardening, starting a garden, and caring for it, is a wonderful way for children to immerse themselves in the natural world around them and learn first-hand about it. Spending time in the garden provides so many benefits and learning opportunities. The garden is a place of applied science. It’s a place where children can observe directly many natural science concepts, and it gives them practical experience of ideas that sometimes may seem abstract. Gardening is also a great activity to keep kids occupied during the summer months.
My Garden Planning and Log Book
My Garden Planning and Log Book, is a great companion tool for children starting a family garden. The book is formatted as a prompt journal and takes a comprehensive approach to gardening. It guides children through the various stages of gardening, such as planning, harvesting, and observing the plants, plus it also encourages kids to learn about the insects and animals that visit the plants, and to see the garden as a whole living ecosystem.
