If you’re looking for healthy, budget conscious, family friendly summer activities, gardening is a great option. Sharing the experience of watching a garden grow teaches your child about how and where produce comes from, inspires even the most tentative of eaters to gobble up fresh fruits and veggies, and it’s an excellent tool for beginning to understand the circle (and cycle) of life. Most important, it is fun and so rewarding to watch your children wonder as first buds begin to appear, or a pea is ready for harvest. An interactive online experience where gardeners of all levels can share videos, photos, ideas and inspiration, YourGardenShow.com brings gardeners together in a rewarding, fun way. With individual and group pages, how-to videos, garden planners and a rapidly growing audience for new garden bloggers, here you can share the wisdom you have “grown.”
