GA(RDENCRAFT AND HOME
CRAFT. "Every Child in a Garden."
Louise Klein Miller. J
"Thd citizenr standing, in the ioor
way of his home contented on his
threshold his family gathered about
his hctirthstonc while the evening of
a well-spent day closes in scenes and
sounds "that axe dearest he shall
save the Republic when the drum tap
is futile and the barracks arc ex
hausted.'' rtlcnry W. Grady.
A company of teachers out on a .
Nature Study -expedition, by chance,
came upon a man "who was cutting
stone from tai quarry, in which were
the most interesting fossil remains of
plants and animals. To the exclama
tion: "How interesting you must find
these rocks 1" the weary man replied:
"I sec nothing in the rocks but hara
work." If he could have read, inter
preted and appreciated the wonderful
story written in the rocks the labor
would not have been so uninteresting
and difficult. The slogan of the
Homccroftcrs, "Every child in a
Garden, every mother in a Hbmc
croft, and Individual Industrial Inde
pendence for Every Worker in a
Home of His Own on the Land," de
scribes a social and industrial condi
tion of efTairs devoutly to be wished. I
Under existing conditions were such
a thing possible we would probably
hear two persons describing their ex
periences as "Ten acres enough," or j
"Five acres too much," l'cpcndent up
on their ability to do intensive farm
ing, or their utter lack of scientific
knowledge of fundamental principles
A child in a garden, or a man on
a farm who sees nothing in the sun '
but hot days in summer; who fiak no ,
realizing sense of the value of Train
fall; who recognizes in the soil a dif-
ficult place in which to dig; who has
no conception of the chemistry of
soils; these persons will see nothing
in the garden or farm but hard work.
The magnet which will keep the
boy on the farm, and attract the boys
to tlftT farjrn is an education based up
on intelligent interest, and scientific
information. Two great forces are
at work, at the present time, toward
that desired end, agricultural educa
tion in the rural -schools, promoted by j
the United States Department of Ag- ;
ricdlture, State Experiment Stations
And University Extension; and the
School Garden Movement in cities
and towns. The former has a more
direct bearing upon the subject, and
the application of the principle s.
more direct. The value of School
Gardens from the educative, rather
than economic standpoint is fast
gaining recognition, and undoubtedly
the children who arc getting: the
training and experience in the city
schools will not be satisfied until they
are able to put the theory into more
satisfying practice. Many instances
come to the directors of School Gar- '
dens, of boys going to the country j
for their summer vacations to work
on the farm, and of some whole fam
ilies, who, have -cither gone to the, su
burbs or country for permanent resi
dence. " '
The School Gardens of Cleveland,
Ohio, were organized less than four
years ago, under the joint auspices of
the Home Gardening Association and
Board of Education. Last year the
Board of Education established a Dc- l
partment of School Gardens under t
the direction of a Curator of School '
Gardens. The work has grown stead
! ily from a few small beds in the
school yards and vacant lots until the j
work is being regarded as very close- f
ly related to all studies in the school
cu,rriculuml Drawing garden plans f
to scale, measuring and laying out I
the ground, affords good work in me- 3

significance; studying the power of
different kinds of soils to absorb and
