Creating a garden provides an opportunity for children to learn about the world around them and experience it with all their senses. Making a veggie patch is one idea towards this goal and it can be a simple process. It also doesn’t cost a great amount to achieve.
Ask your child what they would like in their garden.
Older children could draw, paint and construct what their garden will look like.
Gardening allows children to be involved during the entire process.
You need some tools:
Trowel or small child sized spade
Triple T Dad found some disused rain water tanks, sliced them in half and filled them with soil, compost and manure for some awesome above ground garden beds. Great height for the kids to work at!
You need some seed raising mix and some seeds.
Scoop some seed raising mix into prepared troughs.
