Plants and #Gardening For The #Children


Over the last few weeks, I have noticed several posts and articles discussing the importance of children being introduced to gardening. It is a topic that has been on my mind for quite some time now. Since seeing these recent posts, I could not help but again jot down some of my own thoughts.

There are countless benefits to introducing and teaching our children about gardening organically and how to grow food. Not only for the child and their own future, but also for the family, the community, and the future of this dear planet! 

These natural skills, this ageless knowledge, and our historical heirloom seeds, all need to be preserved and savored for our generations to come, now more than ever! Not only could these skills become crucial to simply existing in the future, gardening also teaches many other life necessary lessons and habits that come from growing a garden of any sort!

Our first #GooglePlus #Garden Event, Gardening with #Heirlooms.

Let me start out with a great big Thank You to +Seed Savers Exchange, and author Rosalind Creasy, for the great +Google+  Event, Gardening with Heirlooms. The information and history we were given regarding heirloom garden seeds, growing vegetables and saving these precious seeds, is priceless! Again, Thank You +Seed Savers Exchange

Rosalind discussed so many wonderful vegetables and plants throughout the hours conversation. The most interesting parts of the discussion, for me, were about the pink potatoes she so loving described, the beautiful French pumpkins and recipe Rosalind mentioned.

Localized seed saving and heirloom vegetables are much more important to the future of our food chain, our gardens, our kitchen, and this planet, than many of us might realize!
I am so glad I was able to attend this Garden Event. Thank you +Seed Savers Exchange!
