Introduction

When gardening with children it is helpful to establish some rules to foster safety, teamwork, and good horticultural practices. Let the children establish the rules. Use multiple choice for acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Examples of unacceptable behavior are pushing, nudging, shoving, running, splashing. Working together and helping each other will establish a genuine spirit of cooperation and fun. Children will more likely follow the “rules of etiquette” if they help create the list.
