Suitable for both young and old, DIY Garden Projects presents 38 projects where garden, craft and kitchen intersect. The book is broken into 6 categories: Kids, Recycled/Upcyled, X-Factor, Vertical Gardening, Gardening Basics and Kitchen.
Projects range from the incredibly quick and simple, such as seasonal seed charts, how to grow micro-herbs and strawberry punnet greenhouses to large-scale building projects such as making vertical gardens from pallets and how to build the ultimate children's play house from recycled apple crates. Complete with a collection of recipes for what to do with produce, this is a great family gardener's companion.
