101 Kid-Friendly Plants
Fun Plants and Family Garden Projects

 
Encourage the Next Generation of Gardeners!
 
Kids can play in the dirt and grow plants that are safe and fun!
 
Kid Friendly101 Kid-Friendly Plants: Fun Plants and Family Garden Projects provides an extensive list of flowers, vegetables, trees and houseplants that are safe for kids and fun to incorporate into gardens, landscapes and kids projects. Cindy Krezel, who has worked with kids for more than a decade, has arranged the plants by type—plants from seed, bulbs, annuals, perennials, indoor plants, water plants, vegetables and herbs, fruiting trees and shrubs, and fun trees. She describes the habit of each plant, why it’s good for kids, and ways to use it in gardens and projects. All plants she recommends have been approved of by poison-control experts to ensure that the garden and projects are as safe as possible.
 
Not content with just giving the plants to use, Krezel includes 17 projects for kids and families, incorporating the plants described in the first part of the book. She talks about planting gardens for cut flowers, butterfly gardens, veggie gardens, a rainbow garden, hideaway gardens, water gardens and how to dry flowers. Each plant and project is accompanied by color photos.
 
 
Cindy Krezel coordinated the children’s programs at Martin Viette Nurseries on Long Island, New York, for more than ten years. She ran the Good Earth Kids Club at the nursery and organized tours for the approximately 10,000 kids that come through the center annually. Additionally, she was director of development for the Planting Fields Foundation in Oyster Bay, New York. She is a freelance journalist, with articles appearing in Newsday, Long Island Gardening, and the New York Times, among others.
