Site Spotlight: Garden with Your Kids {kidsgardening.org}

Posted on Apr 13, 2021 by 3 Comments

Spring has arrived, which is the perfect time to get outdoors with your kids and introduce them to gardening. The pride they will feel when they see their first tomato bloom or their first flower bud will be priceless.

For those of you who do not have a green thumb (like me) but want to introduce your children to this lovely past-time, I have found a fantastic resource for you - Kidsgardening.org.

Kidsgardening.org is sponsored through the National Gardening Association in an effort to

… promote home, school, and community gardening as a means to renew and sustain the essential connections between people, plants and the environment.

In a time where we are all looking towards more natural living, passing on greener practices to our children isn’t a bad idea!

What Kids Gardening Offers:

  • Featured activities of the month
  • Seasonal articles and activities to do with your children
  • School resources for teachers including lessons, activities, project ideas and professional development
  • Various opportunities for community and school grants
  • Robust resource list contributed (and continuously added to) by readers of the Kids Gardening site

Why We Love This Site

Kids Gardening encourages kids to utilize our natural resources while educating them at the same time. It gets families working together outside, bonding over something that is environmentally and family friendly.

Have you gardened with your kids? What have you found to be a successful “first-time” plant?
