About the Activities

No matter where you live or where you go in this world, there will always be plants. Gardening continues to evolve every day. But gardening does not always require tractors or the most advanced watering systems. If you have good soil, sunlight, water, patience, and keep up with your garden chores, you can be a successful gardener!

Learn more about basic gardening as you go through this series of six fun gardening projects you can do right from the comfort of your home.
