ideas for childrens area?
Our new community garden is starting to fill in; we have built 6 of our 12 raised beds and our membership quota is almost full. A couple of our members have babies and I had thought our children's area would probably consist of a sandbox or small play area for them. But now I am discovering that our garden might actually be a magnet for older children in the neighborhood, which is a delightful surprise. I've noticed children from ages about 6 up into their teens coming by repeatedly to look into the garden. Can anyone offer ideas or their experiences with children's areas and activities in your community garden? We have serious space limitations, but I want to fit something in to take advantage of any interest our neighborhood kids have in gardening.
