A few tips to get your green thumb going…
- Check out tons of kid-friendly gardening resources from the great folks at Kids Gardening;
- Even if you have no yard, you can still garden. Check out community garden plots in your area or start a container garden. Many churches now offer garden space for their members;
- Check your local newspaper for U Pick farms and orchards; and
- To find a farmers market near you, visit: Local Harvest or The USDA.
Berry stained faces. Watermelon seed spitting contests. Fresh strawberry shortcake or homemade peach ice cream. I can’t imagine my memories of summer without these things. Summer comes but once a year — don’t miss out on its bounty, and take the time to introduce the magic of summer to the kids in your world.
Now, if you will excuse me, I am off to hunt for the perfect strawberry. Join me?
