    Love that your sharing gardening with children. The future is dependant on them understanding their food supply.

    Good for you! We also need great teachers who know what the priorities should be! There is a school nearby that has not only started their gardens, but are doing the worm farm thing too. They are recycling the lunchroom waste and have generated several hundred pounds of great compost! Keep up the great work! WE have been teaching for nearly 50 years now, so if there is anything we can help you with, don't hesitate to ask!

    I agree, I am working on my degree in elem. education, and children need to know about gardening, it also helps in hands on learning whn they are able to grow their own veg. we did beans and squash at the school, we also hatched chicks for a class assignment
