Planting the Wild Garden

Katherine O. Galbraith

Categories: Farming , Gardening , Seeds , Washington County Library

Resource Description

A farmer and her son carefully plant seeds in their garden. In the wild garden, many seeds are planted too, but not by farmers hands. Different kinds of animals transport all sorts of seeds, often without knowing it. Sometimes rain washes seeds away to a new and unexpected location. And sometimes something extraordinary occurs, as when the pods of Scotch broom burst open explosively in the summer heat, scattering seeds everywhere like popcorn. Kathryn Galbraith’s lyrical prose seamlessly combines with Wendy Halperin’s elegant, crisp illustrations to show that many elements-some unexpected-work together through the seasons to create and sustain the wild meadow garden.
