Children's Gardening book

Pocket-Sized Farms - Kid's Garden Book

After three years of gardening with children in the London, Ontario,
LifeSpin has produced the "Pocket-Sized Farms Kid's Garden Book".
Organized around the seasons the book is designed for children to use as
members of a school garden club or in their own backyards. The book uses
two fictional characters, the Crow and the scarecrow, in a rhyming story
format to guide children through a series of important organic
gar-dening principles. It is in-tended both as a source of inspiration
and a learning opportunity for children. Evocatively illustrated by Jay
Cassels, the book includes a number of journal pages to make garden
notes as well as space for kids to design their own garden  plan.

The childrenís book is part of a package of materials that LifeSpin is
developing to encourage London area schools to develop pro-ductive,
inspiring gardens on currently barren school yards. We believe these
spaces can be a source of healthy, organic food. The second part of the
package is a Teacherís and Parentís Guide to Organic Gardening that will
be available soon. This will include organic gardening advice, a number
of  educational activities, and specific tips for gardening
with young kids.

The Kid's workbook - Pocket-Sized Farms sells for $10 each or $8.50 each
for five or more copies.
The "Teacher's and Parent's Guide to Organic Gardening" will sell for
$15 each.
