Starting Kids Young at Gardening
Gardening doesn’t need to begin at college. Schools are planting gardens, and more and more botanic gardens are devoting space to children.
This video brings us to the children’s garden the San Antonio Botanic Garden. Every Saturday morning parents bring their 8-13 year-olds to work in the garden, mentored by master organic gardeners.
Before coming here some of these kids didn’t know where vegetables come from—except the supermarket. Now they are started on a lifetime of useful pleasure.
