Gardening With Seniors and Kids

Seniors and kids are a natural combination in the garden. Seniors have years of experience, wisdom, and patience for creating gardens, and kids have the enthusiasm, energy, and strength to help make it happen. Working with both groups requires special considerations, but a new book can help make your intergenerational garden a success. Generations Gardening Together, by Jean Larson and Mary Meyer (Haworth Press, 2006; $20), is geared towards health care professionals, Master Gardeners, and anyone working with seniors and kids in a garden project. Chapters are devoted to working with each age group, designing an accessible garden, and building a program. The heart of the book is a chapter outlining a six-week intergenerational sensory garden activity plan.
