New Website of the Month! - My First Garden

Happy Spring! It's time to get our gardens growing!

My First Garden is for kids who are new gardeners and for kids who have gardened before.

Get started by looking at photos of kid's gardens around the world and learning about tools you will need. Then choose a garden spot, check out the dirt, and you're on your way!

Remember - your garden can be large or small. You'll feel proud as you watch your vegetables, plants, and flowers grow.

Attention Parents: Read our full review on the Parents page.
