Here is a Royal Horticultural Society backed activity book with lots of do-able ideas for garden-related crafts and activities. There are accessible science bits, clear explanations of plant physiology and plant needs and a helpful glossary and index.
The basic assertion is that kids can grow plants anywhere and do not need fruitful acres. Potatoes in sacks, ponds in tubs, carrots in bags, herbs in fruit juice containers are the order of the day. Then there is the fun side of recipes for making the likes of pepper hummus and potato and carrot crisps or creating your own sweetcorn paper, topiary or loofah.
The bright, intelligent presentation and double page spread format is what we’ve come to expect from the best information books and DK have not let us down here. Get a copy in for the next growing season and plunder all the good ideas to turn kids on to their food and their environment. There’s fun and razzle-dazzle to be had in growing and seeding!
