Container gardens are super fun for kids. Because of variety in size, shape and what is grown, container gardens are fun and intriguing to little ones. Container Gardening with kids is also manageable, and even the youngest of children can be in charge of their own container garden.
Getting started is part of the learning process when gardening with kids. Involving your children from the very beginning with soil preparation and the assembling of garden beds helps them connect with the nutrients needed for your plants to thrive and gives ownership over their garden.
Today, Carly, author of Africa to America is going to talk about container gardening. She is a music teacher and mom to two little ones (around my kids ages) that writes about reading, parenting, and adoption. She is the kind of person I wish lived much closer so that we could go out for lunch together. ~ Amanda
