Starting a garden and caring for it is a wonderful way for kids to learn about the natural world around them. It provides numerous benefits and educational opportunities. The garden is a place of applied science. It's a place where children can observe first-hand many natural science concepts, and it gives them practical experience of ideas that sometimes may seem abstract. And gardening is a great activity to keep children occupied during the no school summer months. My Garden Planning and Log Book, is a great companion tool for children starting a family garden.
