From the author of All New Square Foot Gardening, this book shows you how to introduce children to gardening by planting in square foot sections instead of garden rows, a method that is less work than caring for a traditional garden patch. Bartholomew covers the elements of square-foot gardening in raised beds – build a box, fill it with a soil/compost mixture, place a grid on top and select, plant, grow and harvest your plants.

In addition, he demonstrates learning opportunities, including the carpentry skills of making the box, grid and vertical supports, and gardening basics such as plant spacing, staking, watering, pruning, harvesting and composting. Activities are presented by age groups, ranging from preschool to teens. Includes profiles of 26 vegetables and herbs suited to square-foot gardening. Color photographs throughout.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 8 3/4", 192 pages, 2014.
