    Virtual Garden:
    Look for this program soon! It is an educational game that simulates gardening in cyberspace. The desktop version of the program begins with a simulation of infertile soil. The educational game progresses through several tiers. In the first tier, the goal is to make the soil fertile using tools such as fertilizer and tillage. As the game progresses, the player chooses crops to grow. The player controls care of the soil and plants and the yields reflect the culture choices made during the game. Perils such as varying amounts of rain, rodents and pests occur. When yields are not optimal, the program provides instructions to aid the player in a better performance next time.
