Over the New Year I admit that I made a few resolutions. I’m actually determined to see these ones through too as I’m positive they’re going to make for a pretty awesome year. Top of my list – get the kids outside more! My strategy? Gardening. Yep, I’ve been totally inspired by DirtGirl and well prepared to get grubby!
I do need to clarify that I don’t actually have a green thumb. Over the years I have developed an aversion to getting dirty in the garden, so I need a little incentive. What could encourage me to do this with the kids? Well, food! There are so many things you can grow to eat that just aren’t vegetables.
This month’s Green Guide is all about developing your green thumb and we’ve sourced 10 different projects that will be fun for you and the kids (and the final outcome is amazing too!)
