Indoor Gardening

Gardening is for everyone even if you don't have a place for a garden in the ground. Planning a school garden can be a lot of fun. It is a great place to learn-by-doing. Teachers, parents and students should help to plan the garden. Children can find out many things about seeds and bulbs before planting them. Growing plants indoors (in a sunny window in plastic pots or a heavy duty ziploc-quart or gallon freezer bag) can be safer and easier for children than gardening in “plain dirt” on the ground. When children sprout seeds, bulbs indoors, they can also find out about the first stages of plant growth.
