CHILDREN'S GARDEN SURVEY
FOR KIDS


These questions will help us know what kids like to do in the garden. If you tell us what you like to do, we'll count your answers with many other kids' answers. We would like to know things about you. Do you like to garden? Where do you garden? What do you like about the garden? It's ok to check more than one answer for each question. Thank you for answering our survey!

This survey is being sent by e-mail. You do not need to change the e-mail address.
