Gardening with young children / Sara Starbuck, Marla Olthof, Karen
Summary: “Packed with colorful photographs and updated to address
many childhood issues and gardening trends that have erupted in recent
years, it reflects the growing concerns for children’s nature deficit and the
obesity epidemic, and it provides a wider variety of gardening projects, like
vertical, green roof, and container gardens for limited-space or urban areas.
It also contains gardening activities for children of all ages—including expe-
riences for infants and toddlers, because even the youngest children can
and should be involved in gardening”—Provided by publisher.
