3.3 Preschool Gardening: Vertical Vegetable Gardening

Do you think you have too little space to garden? Do you think your junior gardener can’t handle a real plot of land and will simply abandon it to you for care? The idea pictured could allow several children to have individual “gardens” stacked in a small space as a manageable introduction to gardening. Get some expert tips for vertical vegetable gardening along with recipes! Having children grow vegetables themselves is sometimes suggested for getting young, picky eaters to try those nutrient-rich foods.
