Whitney Cohen and John Fisher draw on years of experience of engaging kids in every phase of gardening, from designing the space to preparing fresh food from the harvest. From their experience with their own kids in the garden and from that of other creative family gardeners, they share projects, activities and recipes for inspiring kids to develop a deep and lasting connection to gardens and the outside world - in a window box, a container on a rooftop, or a large garden. Whether you're playing leapfrog over pumpkins, harvesting a feast, cooking up a compost cake or pickling pears, you and your kids will cherish the memories you grow together in a family garden. For kids of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers Hands on, practical, creative garden advice Part of Timber's growing sub-list on children and gardening
