Publisher Comments:

A Square Foot Garden is more than just a perfect place to grow vegetables--it is an ideal environment for sharing and teaching kids of all ages, and this book will show you how. For generations, Mel Bartholomew's top-selling Square Foot Gardening books have made his revolutionary system for growing vegetables available to millions of people. In Square Foot Gardening with Kids, Mel reveals all of the tips, tricks, and fun projects he has used over the decades in one of his most cherished pursuits: teaching youngsters to build and grow their own kid-sized SFGs. Because of its simple principles and fast payoff, Square Foot Gardening is perfect for children. The easy geometry of the gridded box breaks the complex world of gardening into digestible bites that are easy to approach and understand for enthusiastic young learners, and the sequence of tasks required to grow plants from seeds is repeatable and reassuring. Whether you're a grandparent, parent, teacher, coach, or any kind of role model to young people, Square Foot Gardening with Kids offers you the proven methods Mel has developed himself to entertain and amaze the kid in all of us. Kids can learn many valuable life lessons from creating their own garden--such as the importance of following instructions and doing your chores, basic skills like counting and water conservation, and learning to appreciate the nature of food and why it is important to respect it, but more than anything, this clever, colorful new book captures the essence of growing edibles for anyone, regardless of age: it is fun and rewarding.

Synopsis:

Square Foot Gardening with Kids is a fun, colorful new book that introduces kids to the joy of growing vegetables in your very own wooden box. Author Mel Bartholomew shares the many lessons he has learned over two generations of Square Foot Gardening so you can share the experience with the kids in your life.

About the Author

Author Mel Bartholomew developed the innovative square foot approach to gardening back in the 1970s, first publishing on the subject a few years later. His follow-up title, All New Square Foot Gardening, was published in 2005 and has since made home gardening accessible for millions. His Square Foot Gardening television show ran for five seasons on PBS. Through various humanitarian organizations, including the Square Foot Gardening Foundation and the Square Meter Gardening International Training Centers, he has helped put fresh vegetables on the table in underprivileged societies all over the world. He currently resides in California, with the Square Foot Gardening Foundation located in South Carolina.
