There are lots of books out there about gardening, and plenty of them are aimed at kids, but how about a book not just for kids, but written by one? In Gardening with Emma, 13-year-old Emma Biggs gives young gardeners helpful advice on growing your own flowers and vegetables, planning your garden, and more, along with fun facts and interviews with other gardeners. And if you aren’t sure where to start, Emma also has plenty of suggestions for garden themes, like rainbow veggies, A-to-Z gardens, and how to create cool outdoor hideouts. Not to mention her list of the 130 tomato varieties she planted last year…
And books aren’t the only way Emma gets kids excited about gardening—she speaks at events and has appeared on radio shows, plus she has a blog (https://www.emmabiggs.ca/kids-gardening-blog) where she encourages young growers with advice and ideas!
Full of beautiful photographs and helpful step-by-step tutorials, Gardening with Emma teaches kids all the essential skills they need to create and maintain a garden, and, most importantly, how to have fun with it.
