Children learn by exploring and learn with all their senses. San Francisco native plants can provide soft, safe environments for young children and opportunities for exploring the natural world, including butterflies and birds, for older children. We discuss what to plant in San Francisco to provide opportunities for children to learn and explore nature.

Karasoff has an “only the easiest plants survive” approach to gardening. She grows a buffet of colorful native edible and pollinator plants, specifically gardening to feed caterpillars and bees.
