Beans and more! Learn and grow!

Peas and beans are fun projects for kids. They grow fast and are easy to track. They are also easy to harvest and prepare for dinner. Keeping our kids involved in our gardens teaches them to be self sufficient and helps develop an appreciation for the work that goes into the food we eat. 
Plant a bean garden, watch it grow, pick the beans and pea pods, and make a salad or side dish! Have fun and GROW!

More than gardens!

Yard games are played on lazy summer evenings, with family and friends. Yard games are played at formal gathering - weddings, birthday celebrations, company gatherings and high school or college graduation celebrations!

We can help you organize the fun!
