Children have a natural fascination with growing things. You can foster that natural interest by introducing them to organic gardening. Here are some ideas for participating with your kids in the organic garden.
1. Start small, and maybe even indoors. Sprout alfalfa seeds, chives, or other easy-growers in the window sill.
2. Consider container gardening for your child’s first outdoor organic garden. Container gardening is very flexible, and lends itself easily to organic methods. Tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, and other vegetables can be grown in containers. Many flowers and herbs do well in pots as well. Because the plants are contained, problems like insects and weeds are easier to manage by organic means.
