Sustainable Saturday - Gardening with Children

Several years ago my husband gave me a book, Gardening with Children. For the last three years we have done just that, allowed our kids to get dirty and learn how to grow food and a little bit about where food comes from. I was reminded how important this concept is to kids today when my 5 year old neighbor didn't know what a carrot looked like both in the ground and once harvested!

We live in a time of prepackaged foods even fruits and vegetables. Growing our own food is not only a way to save money for our family, but we are teaching life lessons about how to grow food, what it looks like in the raw and where food comes from. Next year, maybe a community garden! I like to think BIG!
