9 Reasons to Garden with Your Kids by Adventurous Moms
Kids love being outdoors, covered in dirt and mud and worms. Gardens are a great way to channel their natural curiosity into a fun activity! Unlike many activities, gardening is not limited to a particular age group. Older kids can help plan and design the garden, prepare the soil, plant seeds, weed, water, and harvest the vegetables. Younger kids can do most, if not all of these garden chores as well. Even toddlers can help plant seeds and water growing vegetables. Gardening is truly an activity the entire family can enjoy.
