Sustainable Gardening Activity Guide

"Sustainable gardening is the practice of creating beautiful and bountiful gardens by choosing plants and employing techniques that support biodiversity, preserve natural resources, and make as little negative impact on the Earth as possible."

This thoughtful, detailed guide is designed for educators and caregivers, but there is helpful information for gardeners of any age or skill level.

In the guide, you can learn more about planting pollinator gardens, bird gardens, xeriscapes, and rain gardens. Plus, the guide is full of activities for engaging even more deeply with your garden.

The mission of KidsGardening is to create opportunities for kids to play, learn, and grow through gardening, engaging their natural curiosity and wonder. They offer inspiration and support to educators and families by way of grants, original educational resources and activities, and by cultivating a community of practice.
