Gardening with kids 101

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Learning to garden has lifelong benefits. It also provides a way for parents to give their children a hands-on lesson in science and nutrition.

Heather Waterfield from the Family Conservancy says gardening with the kids can also be therapeutic for everyone involved.

Heather's tips to make your garden a success:

  • Keep it simple
  • Start small and build on success
  • Involve children in the planning
  • Give each child their own "spot"
