The Children's Kitchen Garden

A Book of Gardening, Cooking, and Learning
The Children's Kitchen Garden

Celebrate the wonder of gardening, cooking, and learning to appreciate food with The Children's Kitchen Garden by Georgeanne and Ethel Brennan.

In Berkeley, California, the teachers and students at the East Bay French American School are working together to implement an innovative new program: children connect with the earth and learn environmentally sound practices of gardening and an appreciation of good cooking and good food, and the experience is rounded out with the fun of getting "down and dirty!" Their vision and practice is now available to the world with The Children's Kitchen Garden-the first book of its kind.

This book is designed to be a parent's guide to teaching children (ages 5 to 12) the many rewards of growing and cooking one's own produce, from the environmental and health benefits to the joy of eating the freshest foods. Families will find all the basic gardening information they need to get started including:

  • Choosing a site, preparing the soil, watering, and making compost from kitchen scraps.
  • Dozens of delicious child-friendly recipes.
  • Specific chapters devoted to 18 types of vegetables and 13 herbs, with planting and cooking tips for each.
  • Fascinating and fun-filled projects for children and adults to explore together.
