Any advice, ideas or resources would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

It was the one big present I got from her every year.  I love my garden and think of Ganny every time I dig in the dirt!  Thank you Burpee for making my childhood special!  :-)

<![CDATA[Science experiments with seeds ]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/220/science-experiments-with-seeds- Are your kids less than enthused about getting back in the classroom? Ease them into their school studies with a lesson in the garden! Conduct experiments to teach your kids which conditions are best for plant growth by providing different levels of sun, water and soil. Have them keep a gardening journal highlighting the progress of their work. 

What fun, creative ways have you gotten your kids to learn in the garden?
