Product description


An introduction to productive gardening that any novice could benefit from reading. --BBC Gardens Illustrated

A cornucopia of ideas to get the family gardening, with everything from planting adventures to healthy eating. The material is ideal for novice gardeners but has challenges enough for seasoned green fingers. Above all, it looks like fun - the best way to educate. --Waterstone's Books Quarterly

The first few pages of this book make you smile and realise how you need to change your thinking to garden successfully with kids. After that it is packed with clear growing advice, inspirational pictures and a monthly recipe and activity. It's my handbook! --Garden Answers

The authors' first hand experience with so many children is what makes this book stand out above others that attempt to encourage adults to garden with children and help them cook what they grow. And it really doesn't skimp on detail. It really does cover all you need to know about how to garden with children so that you enjoy it and are able to reap the benefits of all your hard work. Highly recommended! --Growing Places


Five years ago Karen Liebreich, Jutta Wagner, Annette Wendland and others began to restore the neglected seventeenth-century kitchen garden at Chiswick in west London, bringing in hundreds of local schoolchildren to work and learn and garden and eat. This book is the fruit of that experience. With the emphasis on what will be fun to grow and useful for a family of four, it provides clear instructions on growing vegetables, fruit, herbs and cutting flowers, and month-by-month advice on what to do when. It notes 'child-friendly' vegetables such as potatoes (children enjoy searching in the soil for potato 'treasure') and peas (the seeds are large enough to handle easily) and gives tips on approaching gardening activities with children. There are also recipes using homegrown fruit and veg that kids (as well as adults) will want to make and eat - from oriental summer rolls and homemade ketchup to parsnip crisps and fruit ice lollies - and projects that are accessible to the whole family, such as building a ladybird nesting house and weaving a willow wigwam for climbing plants.
