Easy, Family, Growing Projects

“We have so little time. What are easy, fun, growing projects I can do with my family at home?”

The “Easy-Peasy Vining Vegetables Project Grow seeds in pots into fabulous tall vines that flower and create yummy pea pods, beans, cucumbers or small pumpkins right at home! This project is a beginner’s and/or a family dream project. Ten, short, free, YouTube videos of our neighborhood children take you step by step! All you need is fertile soil near a fence or in a pot, 6-8 hours of sunshine, a vertical element such as a fence, trellis or suspended strings, and water from a bucket or hose. The short videos show a children taking each step through the process from seed to harvest. Enjoy your child and the fresh vegetables you grow together at home!

“Community Shade” Plant the future with a 2-year-old native Red Oak that increases the value of your home and community. We provide two heavy-duty yellow tomato cages to protect the tiny tree from lawnmowers/whippers and an HHH tag that identifies the tree and its multiple ecological and aesthetic benefits.

“Best Garden Type for Our Family” Discover whether vegetable window boxes, fruiting trees, raised beds, a ‘square foot’ garden, a ‘lasagna’ garden or even simply patio containers will provide maximum fun and the greatest satisfaction for your family’s gardening efforts.

perennials I already have in a new, creative flow!”
