ONLINE: Creating a Child-Friendly Garden
In his book, Last Child in the Woods, Richard Louv writes that “stress reduction, greater physical health, a deeper sense of spirit, more creativity, a sense of play…are the rewards that await a family when it invites more nature into their children’s’ lives.” If you are intrigued by the idea of making inviting and nurturing places for children within your own garden, this class will inspire and inform you! You‘ll learn ways to create unique places for nature exploration and play that fire your child’s imagination and “grow up” along with them, and fun ways to incorporate easy food gardening as part of your regular family activities. All attendees receive “top ten” lists of child-friendly plants to include, a list of plants to avoid, and other helpful resources. Attendees should bring some photos of their existing yard for customized advice.
