Vegetable_Varieties_for_Containers (pdf, 2pgs, 625 kb)
Growing plants in containers (referred to as container gardening) is an easy way to grow and maintain vegetables.

See the pdf above for recommendations on varieties of popular vegetables that are well-suited for growing in containers

Sunflower Garden (pdf,13pgs, 6MB)and Container Herb Garden (pdf,13pgs, 5MB) for Young Children resources. These resources provide you with all the knowledge and steps to start the garden as well as related activities for each early childhood age group (infant to school age). While the resources were written with a child care provider in mind, they would also be useful for families. The sunflower garden is the easiest one to do – sunflowers can grow well in poor soil and just need some good sunlight and water! If it can be an option for families, a small garden can help provide hope during these difficult times
