The garden is a wonderful place for kids to learn, but how in the world do I plant a garden that kids work in and eat from? They’re not going to be able to plant or pick on their own. They’re going to make a mess of it. Do you think those things? It can be a challenge to make a garden with kids, especially if they are very young. I work in my garden with kids ages one to five. Even a one year old can learn a ton in the garden and help grow food. I can show you how.
