    It does feel like the right thing to do to help people understand where food comes from and what the diference is between home grown and store bought food doesn't it?

    Have a great food education day.

    Thanks Green Desert! I agree with you 100% on getting kids in the garden. Our kids have learned SO much from our backyard farming adventure. They love it too! No begging them to help out in the garden, they work right along side us by choice.
    It's awesome you're gardening in the desert!

    I love your picture. Getting kids into the garden is not only fun, it builds a bond that lasts for a lifetime. I hope your CSA works well enough for you.
