A Billion Acts of Green ... by Taking Time to Play

Make gardening an outdoor adventure.

The most important aspect of family gardening is spending active time together - away from TVs, DVDs, video games, computers, and cell phones.

Have reasonable expectations about what children will do in the garden and about how much produce you may actually get (you can always find a farmer’s market if you need to).

Take time to smell the herbs, roll in the grass, run in the sprinkler, and leave the garden behind for a long walk around the neighborhood.
