Easy Peasy: Gardening for Kids
By Kirsten Bradley
Gardening can be a lot of fun for kids! Easy Peasy is packed full of inspiring and simple activities for every curious young gardener, whether you have a backyard, a balcony, or a windowsill. You can experience the wonders of nature by planting a seed and watching it grow into a flower, by picking delicious fresh berries in the summer or making a bird feeder to help hungry small birds in the spring. Make your own pots, build balcony boxes, and even get friendly with worms! Why not make a terrarium in a jar for your bedroom or keep a wildlife diary and observe the beauty of nature up close and personal? Wherever you live and no matter what time of year, Easy Peasy invites you to dig your hands into the dirt and explore the world around you!
Each activity has been carefully chosen to create living, renewable and sustainable environments for kids and their families. Each activity has been carefully written by Kirsten Bradley, a leading practitioner in permaculture for kids and co-founder of Milkwood permaculture farm in Australia. The simple steps and beautiful spot illustrations make activities fun and easy to follow. The book will also feature non-activity spreads explaining the importance of why and how nature works. Illustrated by Aitch, a Romanian artist whose folkloric illustrations pay homage to vintage botanical books while giving each page a sense of modern magic.
