Little Green Spade Booklet 1 | Making a Great Start on Your Garden

Children will be most excited about growing something they can eat. Imagine their excitement when they can sow seeds into the soil and follow the plant growth right through until it’s ready for picking and most importantly eating! This Diary will cover everything you need to know to plan the perfect garden.

This full colour, 56 page book covers topics such as where to locate your garden, how to involve children in building the garden, worm farms, mulch, no dig garden beds, tools of the trade, children's safety plus much more. Designed and produced by early childhood educators, for early childhood educators. Perfect for all children in an early years learning environment – from family day care to long day care, preschools to occasional care.

The Little Green Spade will help educators to develop and implement quality programs that support sustainable practice. It links to all seven quality areas with primary areas of influence in the assessment and rating standards 1 and 3: ‘educational program and practice’ and ‘physical environment’.
