About the Book



Share gardening with a child, tween, or teen with the Square Foot Gardening method and give them life skills and experience to last a lifetime.



Book Synopsis



Mel Bartholomew's top-selling Square Foot Gardening books have made his revolutionary garden system available to millions of people.

In Square Foot Gardening with Kids, Mel reveals his tips, tricks, and fun projects in one of his most cherished pursuits: teaching youngsters to build and grow a SFG of their own.

The easy geometry of the gridded box breaks the complex world of gardening into digestible bites for enthusiastic young learners, and the sequence of tasks required to grow plants from seeds is repeatable and reassuring.

Kids learn many valuable life lessons when tending their own garden -- such as the importance of following instructions and doing your chores, basic skills like counting and water conservation, and learning to appreciate the nature of food and why it is important to respect it.

Most importantly though, they learn that growing your own food is both fun and rewarding.



Review Quotes




"Square foot gardening, it turns out, is a great educational tool." - Bismarck Tribune



"What I liked best about this book was that it had a bunch of science explanations, diagrams and activities that could be used to integrate home and school gardening." - Thinking of Teaching blog (www.thinkingofteaching.blogspot.com)




About the Author



Mel Bartholomew was the founder and inventor of the Square Foot Gardening method and the author of All New Square Foot Gardening, the best-selling gardening book in America for a generation. The guide has sold 2.5 million copies since Bartholomew wrote the book in 1981. He hosted a PBS TV show for five years, and then was telecast for three more years on the Learning Channel and Discovery Network. Bartholomew presided over the nonprofit Square Foot Gardening Foundation, which encourages every household around the world to have a small garden and eat fresh, healthy vegetables that are uncontaminated. He passed away in May, 2016.

Mel Bartholomew developed the innovative square-foot approach to gardening back in the 1970s, first publishing on the subject a few years later. His follow-up title, All New Square Foot Gardening, was published in 2005 and has since made home gardening accessible to millions. He currently resides in California, while the Square Foot Gardening Foundation is located in South Carolina. www.squarefootgardening.com
