Follow a group of students in Santa Fe, New Mexico, as they select and plant seeds, care for their classroom garden, and enjoy the bounty of the harvest.

A combination of celebrating the joy in seeing adults and children collaborating on such an outdoor project and explaining how to make such a class garden a reality, this book is illustrated with photos taken of the students and their garden.

Along the way you'll discover how to compost, create special art activities related to the garden, and how to prepare some of the veggies that come from the garden into delicious dishes.

With a decidedly southwestern feel, It's Our Garden is an evocative book that will encourage young and old folks alike to come together to share the joys of gardening.
