Kids Letters to the Editor


Grade 4 students at E.G. Wahlstrom

To the Editor:

The purpose of gardening is to create more healthy foods for people to eat, and planting flowers adds more oxygen into the air. It is also a time to have fun getting dirty!
I have been gardening for as long as I can remember. When I’m outside gardening, the sun is shining, the wind is blowing, and my dog is outside with me. I like to be in the garden, because when I garden, I like to see all the bugs and worms hiding in the dirt. I like to plant seeds for flowers, vegetables, and fruit. I also like to plant trees!
I get to take care of my garden throughout the summer, and make sure it gets water often. Once the garden is ready to harvest, I get to eat my home-grown vegetables and fruits.
My favourite berry is a saskatoon; they are so good!

To the Editor:

The purpose of gardening is growing your own flowers and food. If we didn’t plant plants we wouldn’t be able to breathe or eat! I haven’t really helped with a garden but I’ve seen a garden. My nana Crystal has a big garden in her backyard. My Nana has a green house, raised gardens and a garden on the ground.
I would like to help in a garden or have a garden of my own. If I had a garden of my own it would give me food to eat! I would like to grow corn, carrots, potatoes, peas and onions. With all of these vegetables I could make a stew! My family and I have an apple tree and my mom takes the apples to an apple pie! Food gardens are meant to feed us, but you can also grow a flower garden!

To the Editor:

People have gardens for different reasons: They like gardening, they don’t have to pay as much for food or because the food tastes better. Some people also do it because they know that the food isn’t covered in wax or chemicals.
I do help in my family’s garden. I help plant the seeds and eat the fruit and vegetables. I like working in the garden unless I have to weed it. I like to watch the plants grow and then eat them. My favourite things that we grow are carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, raspberries, cherries and all the fruit we grow.
I don’t know about everyone else, but I like gardening.
