Gardening for Kids
I've just built a 6ft x 12ft raised bed at our Scout Hut and I wondered if anyone has any creative ideas to really get the kids interested in gardening. The age ranges are Beavers (6-8), Cubs (8-10.5) and Scouts (10.5-14) and the site gets sun from mid-morning through to the evening, gets a bit windy at times, has plenty of rabbits to contend with and I wouldn't rule out a bit of occasional vandalism so avoiding things that would attract attention such as tall sunflowers or large pumpkins. For example the younger ones might like 'the enormous turnip' or growing their own bread as in 'the little red hen'. Any other good ideas?
