Gardening with Children

by Monika Hanneman, Patricia Hulse, Brian Johnson, Barbara Kurland, Tracey Patterson
Brooklyn Botanic Garden—home of the oldest continuously operating children’s garden in North America—offers a groundbreaking handbook that helps parents, teachers, and community gardeners introduce the pleasures of gardening to kids. In addition to learning the basics—including how to grow common plants from seed—young gardeners will be encouraged to discover nature’s cycles, become ecologically aware, and follow their inborn curiosity as they explore. It doesn’t matter whether kids have access to a large green yard or only to a windowsill planter: here are scores of fun projects that can awaken their sense of wonder about the natural world while nourishing cognitive functioning and self-confidence. Youngsters will love building a root-view garden from a milk container, making chlorophyll prints, constructing a hummingbird feeder, and more.
