Teaching Youth to Nurture Nature By Adam Lansdell   Gardening can instill many positive attributes within your young one. Learning to nurture plants at a young age can create a lifelong relationship between children and the Mother Earth, while also showing them firsthand just how rewarding the act of patience and persistence can truly be. While there are many types of gardens, fruit- and vegetable-bearing gardens tend to be favorites. With that being said, it’s also important to bring your child intro the fold by introducing him or her to a plant that’s easy to maintain and yields results. Great options for those looking to get started this spring include cherry tomatoes, sunflowers, carrots and snow peas. Your child will be filled with wonderment and pride when he or she see the fruits of their labor firsthand. As the years pass, children may even develop a knack for the activity, as they evolve from simply enjoying playing in the dirt to looking forward to the results each season’s harvest.
