Garden Grown with Love

Garden Grown with Love

One of the best  and probably the most fun ways to teach your child about going green is gardening. And really, what better way to ‘grow’ family memories and teach them about sustainability than in a garden? In addition to teaching them about where fresh food comes from, it’s a great way to teach respect and an appreciation for Mother Nature. Gardening can also foster communication, build strong relationships and offer an opportunity to work towards a common goal. Our weatherproof outdoor sign is perfect to display in the garden to show adult and visitors just how proud children are of their garden.  www.pdfeducationsupplies.com.au
