Overview

Every boy and every girl who has a garden at home, or who is given a plot in a school garden, ought to learn to do the work successfully. Yet, as the author has found, children, especially those who live in cities and towns, know little or nothing about producing anything from the soil, and since the teacher cannot always be present to direct the work, there is danger that discouraging mistakes will be made. For these reasons it seems that a simple printed guide to make clear the first steps may be of the greatest help, especially when the work is done at home.
