Get your children engaged in nature

One Bay Area woman would like to introduce your children to the wonders of nature. Louise Hassan shows us what can happen when you get your kids away from video games and engaged, outside!

Louise's tips:

  1. Start your child with a raised vegetable bed garden. They're simple to install and a perfect introduction to growing his/her own flowers.
  2. Consider using "enclosed" vegetable gardens. They help to keep your garden critter free!
