Young Gardener Activities

Join ATC and nationally known gardening expert Melinda Myers in exploring and enhancing our backyards and neighborhoods.

Welcome more visitors

Invite more toads, pollinators, and birds to your backyard by growing plants that provide food and shelter. And don’t forget the water. Even a few containers and a birdbath or fountain can attract these welcome visitors to even a small yard or balcony.

A young gardener’s journal

Use this young gardener’s journal to record all the fun, cool and unusual creatures you find on your walks and in your yard. Once you get started you may find you need to print more pages to write down all you see. Be sure to invite your family and friends to explore their yards and gardens too.
