Gardening with kids and art?

This summer is a great time to teach the kids to eat local, and what better way than in their own garden. Radishes come up immediately, and lettuce and tomatoes, peppers and eggplant follow in rapid succession. My own kids loved anything which grew on a vine, and pumpkins over took our lawn. Recycled sculpture made from old car and tractor parts coupled with old tools is the finishing touch!

  1. HI! Love the post and really love the "art" angle!
    Kids can learn SO MUCH from gardening. Even "just the food" part is valuable, but it can mean so much more.

    Erika sent us a great story about teaching her children to value LEARNING through gardening. Great video, check it out here:

    Hope you like it!
