Author Sharon Lovejoy on gardening with children
May 31, 2012 - Charlotte from Peaceful Valley
We had fun talking with children’s gardening expert Sharon Lovejoy at the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show. Watch Sharon with Tricia in our video, pick up tips on growing in metal containers, and find out why Sharon is an organic gardener.
Sharon and Tricia met at an attention-getting garden in a round stock tank—designed by organic farmer Fred Hempel of Baia Nicchia Farm in Sunol, California.
Sharon writes and illustrates garden books, most with a special focus on how to get your children (and grandchildren) out into the garden. We like all of Sharon’s books, but our current favorite is Toad Cottages & Shooting Stars with ways for grown-ups to share gardening and garden-to-table cooking with kids.
Discover the special world Sharon Lovejoy creates through her books and blog.
