Here you’ll find some simple ideas for teaching elementary and middle school-aged children about life in the garden. Simple, straightforward, these information sheets can help you teach kids how to grow their own vegetables. Topics range from seed to harvest, companion planting to crop rotation. Many lessons contain similar information, so browse through and pick the ones that work best for you.
Enjoy, make comments, feel free to print–but above all–Share the adventure of gardening with a child!
Note: Lessons are organized from basic to more advanced. I found children learn at their own pace, so lessons are organized by general grade and complexity of subject matter.
