Gardening with kids is a wonderful way for kids to learn, but how in the world do I figure out gardening with kids? 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.
