How to garden with kids!

The benefits of planting a garden together with your kids are endless. Spend quality time with your children while you introduce them to a hobby that will last a lifetime. This is just one reason why a child’s garden is so great.

It’s time to get started gardening in Texas. Visit your local garden store to see what’s available. Everything is available and ready to be planted! Blackberry bushes or fig trees can be planted at the end of January.

BENEFITS OF A KID’S GARDEN

Children who garden with their parents are not only creating a hobby for life, but also making them healthier. They get more vitamin D from the sun and fresh air than they do from their food. Having their hands in dirt also helps to boost their immunity.

Furthermore, your child can help to create a garden for their own enjoyment.

Studies show that children who garden have healthier eating habits and do better in science. Children love to see new life emerge from a seed. And, let’s face, children also enjoy getting muddy!

A children’s garden can be a wonderful way to teach science and education.

These are great ways to teach children to respect the natural environment.

Get out your seeds and your gardening gloves and enjoy some time creating a beautiful garden for your child.
