We’re celebrating our 2nd birthday!
I can’t believe it – this coming Monday (October 1st) is our 2nd birthday! The time has really flown by and Gardening 4 Kids has continued to grow at an amazing rate. In this time some of our greatest accomplishments have included:

  • increasing our range to now stock over 60 different products,
  • attending markets, expos and other community events where we’ve been able to meet our customers face-to-face,
  • supplying large corporations with their children’s Christmas party gifts, and
  • winning the 2012 Green Lifestyle Award in the Kidsย Category.

Most importantly though, we’ve encouraged and inspired thousands of parents, caregivers and educators (just like you) to spend time with their kids outside in the garden. To say a big thank you for all you kind words and support we’ve received over the last two years we would like to celebrate our birthday with a giveaway for one lucky customer.

    We are going to use an old sandpit to for my 4 year old to make her own flower bed and we are going to try and make a bean teepee cubby house.

    Wolfgang (20mths) and I spend hours a day in the garden, we have (unevenly) sown many seeds in recent weeks, and each morning we inspect which ones have sprouted! We are feeding a big box of silk worms from our mulberry trees, and painting colours on snails shells so we can track them around the garden from day to day! Wolfie’s best friend is a Willy Wagtail., and he feeds him cockroaches! Hooray for spring and grubby babes!

    My 4 yr old adores gardening. She suprises me so much. Over the weekend we helped out at the childcare gardening bee and she insisted that noone pull out any of the weeds until she turned up after her tennis lesson.
    She’s gor her own vegetable garden at home and cares for it so much. Pumpinks was a request this year from her too. Since they are going to take up a large area she’s created a fairy garden in the bare section for now and checks on it each day to see if possibly fairies may of stopped by to visit.
    Spring/summer is so perfect for gardening and nothing better than get your children involved. Caring for something every single day is important for them to learn and she feels quite devestated if she goes to child care and remembers she’s forgot the watering
    The council has a spring garden competition and last year she entered in the childrens garden category and was over the moon to receive a trophy.
    So we are looking forward to maintaining the vegetable garden and hunting for fairies over spring/summer

      Your daughter sounds like quite the little green thumb Samantha. Winning a trophy is very impressive! I hope her pumpkin patch/fairy garden is a great success.

    we are going pick vegetables out of the garden at school and make vegetable fritters with a side salad of pea shoots and lettuce

  5. Kate S. says:

    This spring we have just planted fruit and citrus trees. We have also built four vegetable garden beds, which we will build up with soil and plant vegies and herbs this spring and summer.
    Also this spring and summer, we will plant more native trees and shrubs in our yard, to attract birds, bees and insects.
    Thank you for inspiring our family in the garden. Congratulations on your two-year birthday!!

    We have finally got a tall volunteer to hang up the children’s jewelled decorated C.D. discs from the tree above the fairy garden The decorations catch the rays of the sun, sending sparkles across Coonara House Early Learnng Centre’s play ground.
    Before the holiday J. one of the children approached me to replace the Scarecrows Hat after it blew off in the wind.I found a wide brim hat for sun safe. It was white and not very stimulating a collective agreement was made with the children was to create a bright and interesting hat with the felt tipped pens.While we were carriyng out this task .J turned to me and ask “If we could give him a pair of pants” as this Scarecrow is wearning a pink skirt at present. My reply was “yes! over the holidays I shall look for new pants for the scarecrow” then a further thought from J.informing me he should have a pair of boots as well. I might just have these in my cupboard.or off to the op shop I will go. A new Spring wardrobe for the Scarecrow?.

    • Caroline says:

      That all sounds lovely Marlene. I can just imagine how beautiful the fairy garden must look. I think the scarecrow will look marvellous with a new wardrobe ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Heather Clark says:

    We are recycling old gum boots and making flower pots hanging on our fence at the entry to our family day care home. children from 12 months to 10 years

    • Caroline says:

      That sounds fantastic Heather. I’ve seen photos of this done before and it looks quite impressive. It will make a lovely display for your entry I’m sure.

  8. Marie says:

    Myself, my own children and my family day care children need to totally revamp our veggie patch which we have just had turned over by our chickens so the soil is great and ready to grow. Not sure what we’re planitng yet but whatever it is will become a great learning experience followed by lots of yummy treats!

  9. natasha lee says:

    We are going to plant an edible herb garden in wheelbarrows I found at the tip. They are missing wheels and will look great.

  10. Susie Venkat says:

    We’ve just created a 6 x 1m ‘no dig’ garden bed layered with chook poo, homemade compost and sugar cane mulch and planted it out with corn, zucchini, a lemon tree, a fig tree and a few other bits & pieces. Now watering, watching it grow and eagerly awaiting first produce. (We’ve already eaten 2 strawberries and 2 pea pods!)

    • Caroline says:

      How exciting Susie! Your new garden bed sounds great. If your family is anything like mine I bet those strawberries and pea pods didn’t even make it inside the house ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Illie says:

    We’re planning on growing some strawberries and flowers. We hope the strawberry will be yummy and the flowers will be beautiful.

  12. Catherine says:

    We are going to pull out an old box hedge to make way for espaliered apple trees. Our boys LOVE apples. We have also started a pizza garden and stirfry garden at school. Hopefully lots of cooking will follow.

  13. Rhonda says:

    Miss 5 is excitedly growing her own flowers from seed to make her playground flower patch look pretty. In the meantime, while waiting for her little seeds to become potted colour, Miss 5 is helping me with the herb garden and strawberry patch – she sees her main job as singing happy songs to the plants so they can grow into happy plants and she can “steal” the strawberries and munch on the chocolate mint.

  14. Chantal says:

    My little one and I are looking forward to eating tomatoes, beans and strawberries straight from the vine and watching our chooks forage in the garden ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Caroline says:
