Get the Kids Involved. Gardening is a great time to spend time and create memories with family members. Not only will they learn how to garden, but learn to be self sufficient. Gardening can teach children to work in groups, eat healthy foods and the value of hard work. If they learn young they are likely to continue gardening as they age. Photo Source: Healing Art Center
