    Published by Redleaf Press free sample chapter

    Gardens are where children's imaginations engage nature, and the result is joyful learning. Use this book to explore the unique and expansive learning opportunities offered by gardening with children—green thumb or the perfect plot of land not required. 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 more than sixty gardening activities for children of all ages—including experiences for infants and toddlers, because even the youngest children can and should be involved in gardening.
