Have you ever thought about growing a garden? You don’t always need a lot of space. People grow gardens in their front and back yards, and even on their roof tops!
Watch Me Grow! A Down-to Earth Look At Growing Food In The City, by Deborah Hodge, shows children how simple it is to start and maintain a garden in the city. Children can learn how city gardeners can grow vegetables, keep chickens to lay eggs and even keep bees for honey!
Hodge also talks about the importance of sharing and shows how people who live in the city can donate what they grow to help support food banks.
