Yates Young Gardener

Janice Marriott

Publisher:HarperCollins Publishers (New Zealand)

Yates Young Gardener: growing things to eat brings together the key contents of two earlier books for children, Yates Gardening for Kids and Yates Growing Things to Eat, published in 2002 and 2003. Since then gardening, and specifically fruit and vegetable gardeing, has undergone a social transformation. From a pastime for the elderly and the mildly eccentric, in an era of economic uncertainty, with concerns over carbon footprints, food miles and what exactly are we eating, many families are putting in vegetable gardens and more and more children are rediscovering the pleasures and rewards from gardening and having home-grown fresh produce that their great grandparents enjoyed. As a result, increasingly schools and families are encouraging children to discover for themselves the magic of gardening and community gardens and cooperative allotments are springing up in the most unlikely places.The Yates Young gardener covers all the basics of gardening, including soil types, compost, friendly insects and deadly pests, sunshine, sunshine, water and nutrients are all explained simply and directly, with gardening related activities, puzzles and games to make the experience as enjoyable as it is informative. With gardening projects and experiements, a lifelong fascination with the transformation of seed and seedling into fruit, vegetable or flower is guaranteed. 'This book really has lots of fabulous ideas for the garden and children', writes the Central Coast Express-Advocate.
