VISIT THE SCHOOL VEGETABLE PATCH

A site which I have created specifically for those gardening with children (not just in school). It includes a calendar of suggested activities. If you are a grown-up gardeners you will find many pages will be of interest to you too - just spend a few minutes taking a quick look and I'm sure you will come back again
