National Gardening Association has been publishing kids gardening curriculum and activity books for more than 25 years. These books are very popular with teachers and parents and one of our most recent books has just won an award. Nourishing Choices (NGA, 2009), by Eve Pranis, offers teachers, educators, parents, and health professionals a road map to successful implementation of food education and awareness programs with kids. It profiles winning schools and youth programs across the country that excite kids about healthy eating. It also has extensive resources on how to get started in your community.
Nourishing Choices has won the Silver Award of Achievement from the Garden Writers Association.
