Overview

Everyone wants healthy children who choose potatoes over chips and oranges over Oreos, but it isn't always easy to convince a picky child to try something new.

The Family Kitchen Garden
integrates the garden and kitchen in a simple, fun way that parents and children can enjoy together. By teaching kids how to garden, they will be more likely to eat what they grow -- what a rewarding way to encourage healthy foods!

Unlike other guides to gardening with children, these are not simple projects just for kids. Rather, the authors believe that kids can do -- and will enjoy -- the same type of gardening that adults do. Part One focuses on the nitty-gritty of gardening with kids: how to keep sessions short, tips on how much to grow, and important safety precautions. Part Two is a month-by-month guide on what to sow, plant, harvest, and eat. Seasonal recipes include nutritious, kid-friendly foods like parsnip chips, rhubarb cake, and homemade ketchup. Part Three is an A-Z guide to vegetables, fruit, herbs, and flowers. Icons note which are plants particularly easy to grow and suitable for young children.

The Family Kitchen Garden is for parents who want to get their kids outside and for families looking for simple ways to lead a healthier life. Grab your kids and get gardening!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

While many garden writers exile children to fanciful play areas within a garden or seemingly pretend that gardeners don't have offspring, these authors are different. Liebreich, with Jutta Wagner and Annette Wendlend (respectively, coordinator, garden designer, and teen session manager, Chiswick House Kitchen Garden, London), annually invites 1000 schoolchildren to work alongside adults growing organic produce. Here they share tips for making children and teens an integral part of a family's working garden. Though ostensibly aimed at parents wanting active, healthier kids, the book will find a wider audience. Liebreich (Fallen Order: Intrigue, Heresy, and Scandal in the Rome of Galileo and Caravaggio) capably conveys growing information useful to anyone interested in kitchen gardening. There are no frivolous "kiddy projects," though there are many creative activities and healthy recipes in the month-by-month section. The plant directory of family-friendly veggies, fruits, herbs, and flowers uses an unobtrusive smiley-face icon to denote items particularly suitable for younger children to grow. Comments from London's littlest gardeners contrast nicely with gardening quotes from historic figures. This American edition is recommended for general readers.
—Bonnie Poquette

Seattle Times
"Monthly tasks and an encyclopedia of vegetables, as well as recipes like a luscious rhubarb cake, make this book as useful as it is irresistible."
Alice Waters
“This is an indispensable handbook for starting a family kitchen garden. Growing your own vegetables and herbs will transform both your cooking and the way your children eat.”
Austin American-Statesman

The last half of the book is an A-to-Z vegetable, fruit, herb and edible flower guide that would be helpful to any gardener who isn’t satisfied with the amount of information crammed on the back of a seed packet.

Cleveland Plain Dealer

"This book shows how to get parents and children together in the garden and in the kitchen."

Columbus Dispatch

"Helpful to those who need reminders of when to harvest the brussel sprouts and when to start the tomato seeds indoors."

Denver Post
“Fun, easy-to-complete projects."
Gardens Illustrated

"This is an introduction to productive gardening than any novice could benefit from reading."

Kiwi Magazine
"Excellent primer for gardening with kids ... long on useful information and growing plans, and doesn’t rely on tired pinecone critters to entertain."
Michigan Gardener
"Knowing that picky kids are more likely to eat what they grow, this book integrates garden and kitchen in a simple way that parents and children can enjoy together."
New York Daily News
“A garden lets you get back in tune with the seasons and nature, grow some of your own healthy food, and do something for your body and soul.”
PlantWhateverBringsYouJoy.com

"The Family Kitchen Garden is a lovely, invaluable resource, which, if implemented, could transform the way we as families spend our time, eat our food and live our lives. Only good can come of this."

Vancouver Sun

"This book is an excellent starting point for families who want to get into vegetable gardening."
