Introduction to the topic:
People of all ages can get involved with and enjoy gardening. Children in particular will gain benefits and have lots of fun by getting out into the garden. Most children enjoy being outdoors and love digging in the soil, getting dirty, creating things and watching plants grow. As well as being educational, children can learn new skills, have fun and develop their confidence whilst out in the garden.
