Kids Garden Month 2024

What do you love about gardening?

Kids Garden Month is an annual celebration of kids in the garden hosted by KidsGardening! Each April, we celebrate kid gardeners, as well as lifting up the many positive benefits gardening has on kids and their communities.

This year, kids AND adults can participate in the month-long celebration to win prizes!

For Kids:

This year, KidsGardening is asking kids to share their favorite thing about gardening, or why kids should garden! Entries can be pictures, video, songs, dances, poems, art, craft, and more! Entries can be submitted by individual kids, or by a group or class.

Contest details and prize information are available on the KidsGardening website.


For Educators, Volunteers, & Caregivers: What do you love about gardening in your region?

Can you garden outside all year long? Is your garden on the monarch migration route? Does your state grow the best blueberries? Are you just itching to pick veggies at dusk with all your mosquito friends? 

We want your sincere, sarcastic, funny, or inspirational answers to the question: "What do you love about gardening in your region?"

For all of April, you can add your answer here as a text response, photos, video, song and dance, artwork, or however you want to convince us that your region is awesome (or not!) for gardening! 

At the end of the month, FOUR respondents will be randomly selected to receive a goody bundle of 1 Back to the Roots mushroom grow kit, seed packets, and garden tools.*
