How to get your kids

out of the house and into the

GARDEN Look up the positive effects of gardening and you'll find a wealth of studies from educational and government institutions that support its impact on your physical and mental well-being. But it's not just adults who benefit from time in the garden. It's a great way to spend time with your kids while teaching them about biology, food and geology.

Here, garden guru Frank Ferragine, aka Frankie Flowers, shares his tested and true techniques to get your kids in the garden. Give them a plot of edibles Your backyard garden can be a fantastic source of delicious edibles like tomatoes, carrots and berries. “Letting the kids pick out and maintain edible plants or grow them from seed in their own plot will help foster ownership in the garden,” says Frankie. “If you're looking for something that will really get the kids and their tastebuds excited, the geniuses at President's Choice have put together a strawberry trio that contains framberries, pineberries and seaburst strawberries.” >>>

outdoor

Give them their own tools “A watering can, trowel, gloves and kneeling pad may be all it takes to get your son or daughter in the garden with you,” claims Frankie.

Create a miniature garden Condo or apartment living shouldn't keep your kids from learning about gardening. “PC Garden Centres have tons of fun planters and colourful pots for the balcony. Planting some microgreens or seasonal flowers in them is a wonderful way to teach your young ones about planting and watering,” says Frankie. “Hanging baskets are another great choice for these smaller spaces, and the bright colours that are trendy this year will captivate your kids.”

"Their own set of tools will make them feel more grown up and more responsible." - Frank Ferragine

Get connected For younger generations who engage each other on social media, showing them gardening has its place online can go a long way. “Kids love taking photos, so why not give your little ones an assignment to take some gardening photos to share with you or their friends?” asks Frankie. “It's likely to spark more interest in the work you're doing out there and you'll make some memories to last a lifetime.” THN www.newscanada.com

recipe


Ingredients

SUPER GREEN SUPERSEED

Salad

1 cup uncooked quinoa* 1 large handful kale, chopped finely* 1/4 cup finely chopped chives* 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro* 1/4 cup finely chopped dill* 1/4 cup finely chopped mint* 2 carrots, shredded* 8-12 spears of asparagus, ends removed, shaved* 1/4 cup gogi berries Handful of broccoli florets, finely chopped* 1/2 cup mix sprouts 1/2 cup mixed seeds/nuts (flax, chia, hemp, raw sunflower seeds and raw pumpkin seeds)

This salad is a perfect salad to make when you are having a crowd, I often bring this when I’m invited to a pot luck dinner party. It is healthy, filling and CLEAN!

Directions

DRESSING 1/2 onion 1/2 cup grapeseed oil 1/3 cup unseasoned brown rice vinegar 2 tbs water

Step ONE Rinse quinoa in a strainer, put into a small sauce pan with 1 1/2 cups water and 1 tsp salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer covered for 15 minutes, fluff with a fork and let cool with lid off. When the quinoa is cooled carry on with step 2.

2 tbs minced ginger 1 very small stalk celery from the interior of the head 1 tbs coconut aminos 1-2 tbs honey 1/2 tbs lemon juice

Step TWO In a large mixing bowl mix together cooled quinoa, kale, chives, cilantro, dill, mint, carrot, asparagus, gogi berries, and broccoli.

1/2 tsp sea salt Freshly ground pepper to taste

Step THREE To Make Dressing: combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Step FOUR Add about 3/4 of the dressing, toss. Add sprouts and nut-seed mixture, toss lightly.

* I chop all the herbs, kale and broccoli together in the food processor. I use about 1 handful of each herb. I use the grater blade for the carrot and the slicing blade for the asparagus.

Step FIVE Taste for salt, pepper and more dressing.

Ancient elements inspire

MODERN ARCHITECTURE trends

Drawing inspiration from the past can yield unexpected results and lend a timeless quality to any space. When balanced with modern elements, ancient elements in the home can create a look that is fresh, unique and classic, but still very of the moment.

Thinking about doing a major makeover or a few strategic upgrades? Then take a page from history and incorporate some ancient elements into your modern renovation project.

Reimagined materials Futuristic stainless steel is on the way out, with today’s materials getting their cue from the past. Warmer metals are a popular choice, with brass and gold leading the charge. Try the trend at home with some budget-friendly updates, like gold plumbing fixtures in the bathroom or brass hardware on kitchen cabinets. Another ancient material making a comeback is marble, which can look gorgeous as tile. More adventurous renovators can try marble wallpaper, a chic and inexpensive twist that’s trending on Pinterest boards and designer plans alike.

Statement pieces Think of the great architectural buildings in Europe, like the Roman Pantheon, which was the first to have an opening in the roof to bring

daylight and illumination to the centre. While the design concept was revolutionary, the opening lacked glass panes to keep the elements out. But this idea of getting more daylight through the roof is a great trend to try in your own home in 2018. Today’s skylights, like the ones from Velux, feature flat glass for energy efficiency and are factory-engineered to keep the elements out. They add drama and style to the home while reducing the need for artificial light, lowering electricity costs and improving mood. Programmable skylights even allow you to open and close the window, helping to achieve optimal indoor air quality that’s important for a good night’s sleep and children’s learning abilities.

Natural connections Take a cue from yesteryear’s more relaxed lifestyles, when we spent more time outdoors and our indoor spaces were more intertwined with the outside world. Start by adding more greenery to your home. Houseplants like the Cereus peruvianus, the perfect cactus that blooms at night, complement both more delicate and rustic looks; while blooming florals balance out colder, more contemporary spaces nicely. Woven textiles are very trendy in 2018 and look great in practical pieces like pretty storage baskets that can disguise unsightly clutter. Find more information online at moredaylight.ca/archtrends.

YOUR BACKYARD

into an extension of your home. Sharon Grech Benjamin Moore Colour & Design Expert

Summer is almost here and now is the time to prepare our outdoor spaces for the season. To help maximize your living areas, Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore colour and design expert, shares tips on how to bring the latest looks to your open-air escape.

Dine al fresco Backyard patio areas traditionally connected to the exterior of the home to gain easy access from the inside. Consider pushing your al fresco dining areas further out into the yard for a unique and ambient experience. “Cooking under the stars is the perfect way to spend time with family and friends while embracing the weather throughout the summer months,” says Grech. Barbecues, fire pits and outdoor wood-ovens are great options for cooking when entertaining guests, as most of the cooking can be done right there.

Create an outdoor oasis Injecting colourful accessories into your landscape is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to elevate a backyard and make it feel like an extension of your home. Whether it's bright, colourful ornate items or hand-crafted outdoor rugs, adding colour to your backyard will create a vibrant and inviting retreat. Flower boxes, string lights and cushions are great ways to make a backyard feel like a serene and inviting oasis.

Deck design Create areas of interest by using both semitransparent and solid stains on your deck and rails. “I like to apply a natural, lighter stain on the deck, with a darker solid stain to enhance vertical architectural features like the railing,” says Grech. If your wood is new or in great shape, treat it with a simple translucent or semi-transparent stain like Benjamin Moore Arborcoat to heighten natural wood colour. Semi-solid stains are great for covering imperfections, allowing some of the grain and texture of the wood to show through, while solid stains are more like paint and leave an opaque colour and texture. “You can test the different translucencies and colours with pint sample cans. It's always best to try-before-youbuy,” recommends Grech. Find more information and colour inspiration at www.benjaminmoore.ca. THN www.newscanada.com

Thank you all for your support.” Soltanian is passionate about working towards equality for women, by bridging the wage gap and creating opportunities for young women in business.
