This book "shows you how to grow great-tasting food the natural way, without chemicals," explains gardening trainer Constance Hardesty. Designed as an activity resource book for school children, this text is also a handy guide for adult gardeners and family cooks. The gardening advice is well grounded and the recipes are simple, but interesting.

Garden plots for nearly two dozen different types of gardens are mapped out, with varietal recommendations and cultivation tips included. The plans are organized into sections as Easy, Medium or Advanced to match the development and gardening interest level of each youngster.
No large garden plots are required for any of these plans; most can be grown in containers, flower beds or small garden plots. Basic gardening tools, such as a shovel and rake, are sufficient. Hardesty, an instructor at the Denver Botanic Gardens, offers handy tips for both garden and kitchen. Her innovative garden plans and clever recipes help to make gardening more fun for kids of all ages.
