Children’s Garden Ideas

I like to see other children’s gardens.  Last summer our family took a one-month roadtrip to Washington, and in addition to seeing friends, family, and the sights, we stopped at school gardens along the way.  On this page I plan to post all of the charming and educational garden ideas I’m collecting.  Sometime the idea comes from a museum or a school or a park—I think all have potential applications in the garden.

Each site is labeled, and a directory to their websites is below.  (You can click on the individual pictures to enlarge them, and then click through like a slideshow.)
