Synopsis:

“What better way to begin to explore the natural world than to experience the magic and beauty of a family garden.” —Arden Bucklin-Sporer, author of How to Grow a School Garden

Many gardeners find that once they have children gardening goes the way of late-night dinner parties and Sunday morning sleep-ins. Raising kids and maintaining a garden can be a juggling act, leaving the family garden forgotten and neglected. But kids can make great gardening companions, and the benefits of including them are impossible to ignore. Gardening gets kids outdoors and away from television and video games, increases their connection to plants and animals, and helps build enthusiasm for fresh fruits and vegetables. Their involvement becomes the real harvest of a family garden.

In The Book of Gardening Projects for Kids, Whitney Cohen and John Fisher draw on years of experience in the Life Lab Garden Classroom and gardening with their own children to teach parents how to integrate the garden into their family life, no matter its scope or scale. The book features simple, practical gardening advice, including how to design a play-friendly garden, ideas for fun-filled theme gardens, and how to cook and preserve the garden's bounty. 101 engaging, family-friendly garden activities are also featured, from making Crunch-n-Munch Vegetable Beds and Muddy Miniature Masterpieces to harvesting berries for Fresh Fruity Pops.

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

A national leader in garden-based education with more than 30 years of experience in the field, Life Lab promotes hands-on learning for people of all ages. As the education director, Whitney Cohen presents workshops across the country and has written several books for teachers and parents on gardening with children. John Fisher is director of outreach. He helped design and manage the organization’s one-acre Garden Classroom and has worked with thousands of children and adults in the garden. They both garden with their families in Santa Cruz, California.
