(4) We Sing Songs About Gardening

Ivan and his mom in their garden

My 5-year-old son, Ivan, is totally blind and multiply handicapped, but this doesn’t stop him from wanting to help out all around the house and in the garden! We started a gardening project last year that made Ivan smile every time we went outside. We planted flowers, herbs, and vegetables. We also planted a peach tree! Ivan loved getting his hands dirty and picking the green beans.
This year we’re going to get some of Ivan’s friends to help out so we can spread his joy of gardening. And one way we’re going to keep everyone happy is to sing songs about the garden while we’re working. We really love the new CD from Maria & Friends called Planting Seeds. They even have a song about composting (which we’re going to try for the first time this year). We hope to have a successful community garden!
