Start Gardening with your Kids!

I'm SO GLAD you joined me today! Whether you're a new gardener or an experienced one, I hope this is a place where you'll find some fun and easy ways to help you garden with your children! This is my first blog entry, and you may read it shortly after I launched this new website. I hope you will return often as I continue to add new entries, gardening resources, and great ideas on the topic of gardening with kids.  

I suspect you are already interested in fresh, organic food and try hard to serve healthy meals to your families! Great! You probably attend farmers markets or belong to a *CSA. If so, I encourage you to choose this year to take things to the next level by sharing the joy of growing YOUR OWN organic food with your kids! 

  • What could taste better than to grow fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs at home or as a part of a community garden?  
  • What better way to show kids where food comes from than to walk outside and pick it?
  • What better way to encourage our kids to embrace healthy eating habits than to model for them how much fun it can be to grow food together as a family?

That's how I started -- in my grandmother's garden (see About page for my story). I now garden with my own grandkids, and believe me, if I can do, YOU CAN DO IT! Today is January 3, and here in the Midwest, it's freezing cold. But it's time to start planning for the growing season ahead.

Sooooo, are you ready? Let's get growing?
