Gardening with Young Children
Gardening with Young Children is a lively and imaginative guide to a child’s experience of a year in a garden. Experienced gardener Beatrys Lockie explains the basic techniques, from sowing the seeds to harvesting the produce, and gives instructions for cultivating easily grown flowers, herbs, and vegetables.
The author also describes projects using berries, seeds, and leaves, delicious and simple recipes, plus stories, songs, and poems about the insects, birds, and animals of the gardening world.
The activities in this “Early Years” book are suitable for gardens of all shapes and sizes—even for a few pots on a balcony or small patio.
“This warm-hearted book by a very successful mother, gardener, and teacher has the potential to become a guide for the next generation toward understanding nature and to heal our threatened environment worldwide.”Sibylle Alexander, author of Told by the Peat Fire
