Overview

Growing Up Green is a wonderful gardening book that utilizes nature based activities to “foster trusting, meaningful relationships between children and adults.” As a clinically based social worker by degree and an avid gardener who has been gardening with my own young children since they were a year old, I fully support this wonderful concept and agree with the ideology. My children have helped my husband and I every spring and fall as we plant our organic vegetable garden and tend to our fruit trees and roses. As they have gotten older, the time spent together and tasks completed have truly been a blessing for our family. The innocent excitement and joy on their faces when they realize that their seeds have sprouted and then the time it takes to help weed, water, fertilize and harvest our bounty together is priceless (plus as an added bonus they are much more likely to eat the vegetables that they have grown themselves).

Growing Up Green is a wonderful guide for adults who have been considering starting their own garden and want a way to interact with the children. I really like the fun ideas for interactive gardening activities such as “finding a planting zone map at your garden center”, “feed the birds” or “learn about poisonous plants.” It is particularly helpful because it includes a month by month gardening guide with the related learning activity suggestions included. There is a lot of useful information provided for new gardeners and the advice is simple yet sound. It is also an inspiring book because as a home educating mom, it has given me tons of ideas that I came up with by simply reading this book. I plan to keep this book handy for when my children are old enough to complete the journal section as part of their curriculum too.

Some of the best (and relaxing/stress free) memories that my husband and I can recall with our children has been spent with our children gardening or planting fruit trees and flowers in our yard. What a wonderful concept for a book and the author has done an excellent job bringing it to fruition.
