HearthSong has created a DIY kit for kids, which is titled the Grow With Me Garden Fort Kit. Included in the kit is a frame that is 58-inches by 58-inches by 48-inches, as well as a ground tarp and four seed packages. Two of the seed packages are sweat pea packages, and the remaining two are Blue Lake beans. However, consumers are able to swap the seeds for any others they may wish to use. The project entails setting up the frame and then using the seeds to create the garden fort.
HearthSong has indicated that it can take a full season for the fort to be entirely covered in vegetation.
The Grow With Me Garden Fort kit is marketed to children as an engaging way to encourage more time spent outside. The kit also allows children to engage with nature in a different way.
