As part of its mission to provide education about gardening and nature to youth and adults, the Springfield Garden Club recently donated a set of three K-4 children’s books to the Whiting Library in Chester and Union Street and Elm Hill elementary schools and the Springfield Town Library in Springfield.

The donated books include:

  • Network with Nature, which encourages kids to put down screens and play outdoors.
  • The Frightened Frog: An Environmental Tale, which shows environmental changes from a frog’s point of view, and
  • The Saved Seed, which describes a seed’s journey from being saved from one pumpkin to becoming next year’s jack-o’-lantern.

These books are intended to begin a life-long love of gardening, caring for the environment and more.
