Kids Garden Month
Kids Garden Month is an annual celebration of kids in the garden! Each April, we celebrate kid gardeners, as well as lifting up the many positive benefits gardening has on kids themselves.
This year, the KidsGardening Kids Garden Month contest asks kids to tell us how their garden takes care of them. Entries can be pictures, video, songs, dances, poems, art, craft, and more! Creativity is encouraged.
We are also excited to present the For Kids By Kids garden chat on April 14! This livestream will feature three amazing kid gardeners who will give advice and inspire other young gardners.
Spread the word!
Will you share about the Kids Garden Month contest and/or the For Kids By Kids garden chat? As we host weekly contest prizes, we are encouraging you to share at the time of the month that works best for you. Here are a few sample social media posts, or feel free to draft your own. Additionally, if your organization is celebrating kids in the garden in April, please let us know so we can share about it and add to the celebration. We are excited to share / story what you post!
