A Great Garden Link for Children

Recently, I received an email offering me a great garden link to put on my website for children.  I have pasted the email below and would like to thank Nicole for her help in researching and sharing her garden link.  Thank you Nicole, what a great find.  There are so many things for children to learn, do and discover in the garden! Hope you have a great summer growing your own garden, with lots of success and fun!

See you in the garden or the garden centre! 🙂

 

Hello,

My name is Erica , I am from Portland, Oregon. Since school ended a few weeks ago, I have been brainstorming outdoor activities and projects My kids can enjoy and learn at the same time. We have been doing some backyard birdwatching, and have also been working on creating a garden in our yard. With the garden we are also researching and identifying insects we come across. We have been doing research online for gardening techniques and learning about flowers, and we thought your page, http://islandgardenscapes.ca/gardening-links/ was very helpful and wanted to thank you!

While we were doing some looking online about flowers and which ones might be best for our garden, My daughter Nicole found this article, http://www.homeadvisor.com/r/gardening-at-home-with-kids/ about gardening for kids. I thought it was a great find by her and thought I’d share it with you so you could add it to your page for other kids to have access to.

Thanks again for all of the helpful information on your page, we really appreciate it! I would love to show Nicole she was able to contribute some knowledge, and if you are able to add the article to your resources I think that would really encourage her to keep on learning and hopefully develop a life long hobby for gardening. Thanks again and hopefully speak to you soon.

Best Wishes,

Erica
