Plant A Garden With Your Kids - Thanks To The American Heart Association And @BurpeeGardens

My kids love being outdoors!  We love pretty flowers, fresh vegetables and fruits, and also learning about how to take care of our bodies and the earth too!   We also like EATING HEALTHY!

In fact, our oldest son practically begged us to PLANT A GARDEN this year!  
What better time to start planting...than now?

In fact, what if we could learn to garden (teach our kids) and also help a cause like "The American Heart Association" with the purchase of the seeds we buy?
(This product was sent free of charge by the company for this review/feature and I was not paid to offer my honest opinion about this product!)
I am so excited to share with you this partnership between Burpee and The American Heart Association, with this "TEACHING GARDENS Starter Kit" Home Edition!
The kids were so excited to not only learn about each vegetable, when to plant them (we checked out the back of each package), and all the details about starting them from seedlings...but also the opportunity for us to grow our own "FRESH" produce in our very own backyard!  AWESOME!
Now we just need to get the potting soil, the containers and to get to planting these awesome vegetables!
This kit has also encouraged our kids, who thankfully willingly eat most fruits and vegetables to at least try, if not INDULGE in some fresh produce!  HEALTHY eating will create a healthy lifestyle for your children!  HANDS ON is the best introduction to this change in eating habits!  
If they help grow it, they will probably be more apt to eat it!

CLICK HERE to learn more about these "Teaching Gardens Starter Kits" and maybe this can be something you and your children work on this summer too!
