Our community garden changes so much with each season, and so it’s nice to slow down and really take in all that it provides for our family.
It is a place we gather to grow food sure, but it’s much much more. It offers endless Practical Life and Sensorial explorations for a child. The sights, sounds, tastes, smells and textures are limitless.
It offers our family not only a chance to grow affordable food, but also meet like minded people from our diverse small community. It’s a gathering place for the community and our children get to meet so many different people that they perhaps wouldn’t cross paths with during our day.
This book is the perfect companion to veteran gardeners or also those just starting out.
It is wonderfully diverse in its characters and tells a simple story of build a garden in an unexpected place in the city.
If a garden isn’t quite possible for you this year, why not check out a farmers market near you and show your child all the awe and wonder of growing things.
