We teach kids about germinating seeds and growing seeds and that’s wonderful, but taking the time to save seeds with kids teaches them where seeds come from and it’s a great STEM project.
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? It can be a challenge to make a garden with kids, especially if they are very young.
Germination is an AMAZING process. It is a fairly complicated process and hard for me to grasp as an adult. Teaching kids about germination is awesome.
Are weeds taking over your garden and yard? There are all kinds of weeds taking over a ton of places I don’t want them in our garden. We have tried everything we can think of to cut down on weeding. We want to get rid of our weeds naturally, so the solution doesn’t make us sick.
Building raised garden beds can be as cheap or expensive as you’d like it to. At Little Sprouts we are on a super tight budget and we built this amazing expansion full of cheap raised beds for a preschool garden with a village of help.
