Garden Projects for Kids

I recently had dinner with my sister and hatched a ‘brilliant’ plan.  My sister is a teacher and works in a childcare centre.  She was chatting to me about the potatoes she recently grew with the children and how excited they all were by the success.  I suggested that together we produce a book for gardening projects with kids.  I figured that with our combined skills we could create a very useful book. 

Anyway she was only tentatively interested.   She’s had a lot on her plate lately and I think she just saw it as more work.  However I have not given up on the idea and will continue to sell it to her.  Watch this space for updates!

PS Don’t forget to check out The Plant Addict Shop while you’re here. 

You’ll find great gift ideas for garden lovers and fellow plant addicts!
