Garden Ecology for Children: Home

A guide for parents and teachers on finding information about introducing children to nature through gardening.


"One of the greatest gifts you can give a child is to cultivate a love for the earth through growing things. Nurture a wholeness in the child's view of the natural world and of the garden's place in it. It's not so much what you do but how you do it that is important. Make it fun!"
