Kids Garden: Teach Your Kids to Grow Food

Discover the Importance of Gardening

When I was a kid, my family and I watched Oklahoma Gardening every Saturday morning. Our kids garden was featured on a segment of Oklahoma Gardening! Teach your kids to grow food and plant a kids garden with them today!

Kids Garden: Teach Your Kids to Grow Food

I have never wanted to be on TV, but let me tell you how it happened. Last year Oklahoma Gardening started a new contest to see viewer’s gardens. Participants had to submit photos of their gardens.

Oklahoma Gardening would put the photos on their Facebook page and fans were asked to vote on what gardens they wanted to see in the contest segment of the show.

Any post on this blog may contain affiliate links which pay me a very small commission for items you purchase using the links but costs you nothing extra. I can help defray a small percentage of the cost of producing the blog to share information with you.



I thought this would be a great way to get the word out about what I’m doing at Little Sprouts. I am hoping to spread the joy and love for gardening with kids to as many people as possible because it’s so important.

Teaching kids about healthy food and where their food comes from is one of the most valuable things I am giving to my kids. I want to encourage others to do it too. I have written a book that is yet to be published and am writing this blog to spread the word.

A feature on a television show could really help me reach a lot of people, and I love that it’s an Oklahoma show because I feel Oklahoma is in big trouble with nutrition. When we make a change in ourselves, we touch those around us. I want to help my state become healthier!

I took some photos of the garden and submitted them to the contest. Then I got a Facebook message asking me if I would want to be a feature on the show instead of just be part of one. WOW! I sure did say yes!

I am not an outgoing or confident person, but I knew this is something I needed to do to get the word out, so I agreed and they said they would contact me the following spring.

After plans were finalized and everything lined up for us and them, they came to film the show. We had a great time! They were very nice and easy to work with. I loved the enthusiasm they had for what we are doing here. It was great to show them what the kids enjoy in the garden.

Little Sprouts TV Filming Day

Gardening for kids

This was definitely a memorable day in my life. I’m so proud of my kids and all they are learning. I’m so proud of the hard work my amazing husband and I have put into giving them the best experiences we can.

I feel so blessed to have been able to do this, and I’m so grateful to Oklahoma Gardening for featuring us on a segment of their show. What a blessing!
