Welcome To The Children's Garden Collection
A Collection of vegetables, Flowers & Herbs
That Every Child Should Have the Opportunity to Grow

Nearly every passionate gardener learned their skills as a child from someone who loved to garden almost as much as they loved the child. Gardening is one of the few safe, healthy and intellectually stimulating activities that can be a lifelong passion. Teach a child that you love to garden - it will be a passion you both can share forever.
