In just a few short days, Our Garden will finally be published and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. Our Garden takes children and parents through the entire arc of a summer gardening season, where a Daddy and child grow healthy food and have fun building and tending their bit of nature together.
Both Illustrator Stephen Green and I (I’m Andy by the way–pleased to meet you) are lifelong gardeners and proud fathers. Our Garden is a true collaboration between friends. Steve’s pictures influenced my words, and my words helped shape the way the story was depicted visually.
We envision this website as a place where families of all types, shapes and sizes can come together to share gardening resources and experiences, laugh about kids digging in the dirt, and take a break from the hectic pace of life outside the garden.
We hope you enjoy our little book!
P.S. Connect with me on social media on Twitter at @AndyDomek and on Instagram @westsacurbangardener and we can talk gardening, fatherhood, parenting or whatever else might be on your mind.
P.P.S. In addition to being a fun story, Our Garden was designed to complement many of the lessons found in Kindergarten to Third Grade that deal with reading comprehension, vocabulary development and of course–the natural world.
