KinderGardens are here!

Oh my goodness, I'm so excited! After years of inventing hands-on lesson plans for all sorts of learners, I decided it was time to create an adaptive gardening curriculum that would make green learning available to everyone, especially homeschooling families and folks with physical challenges.

Surely, I reasoned, there are lots of families that want to garden but don't have the time, the space, or the first idea as to how to make their green dreams a reality.
What they need, I reasoned, is a literal immersion course in the natural world. And with that -
behold, the KinderGardens program  was born!

My hope is that with time, the program will branch out and be a resource for elders, public school groups, and everyone who is interested in growing their own delicious and beautiful foods. I'm a firm believer in the healing, teaching power of nature. For more information, check out the KinderGardens page, and feel free to send me any suggestions and ideas you've got - learning, like life, is an interactive adventure.
