The A B Cs began in my mind several years ago. It began as an idea for a childrens’ book in July 2007, before having a child of my own had even entered my mind. I envisioned an “Everything you need to know about life you learn in kindergarten”-type book; ironically, it has turned quiet literally into a “kindergarden.” And as my garden continues to evolve, so have my ideas, including what I believe I can contribute to make the world a little better place for kids and kid gardeners.
I began in 2007 with some of what I believe are universal premises of gardening. They follow; I still believe these truths parallel life, but minus the practical advice and ideas that I want to share.
*Nothing grows well or is healthy in stressful conditions. That’s true in any garden, except for perhaps weeds. But that’s my point.
*Even the strongest tree needs support
*Looks don’t matter
*We need others around us
*Everything that comes out of the garden can go back into it, except disease
*Once you’ve got it all figured out, all your problems solved, you’re about to knocked upside down again
