I ask kids all the time the same question, and they don't know where their food comes from...That is why my company EarthSource services provides some free seminars, on econobotany and growing foodstuff with several different levels from K- 5th grade...It is fun to have a hands on veggie planting with kids...I encourage them to send me pics of what turns out.
I think what you are doing with your company is a wonderful thing. Have the kids sent you photos of their crops? Education is definitely the key. Thank you for your efforts to help children understand the connection between what they eat and where the food actually comes from.
That's definitely a great way to gain someone's interest. I would love to see a photo of that sign. :)
Thank you both kindly for commenting on this article.
I usually take the current years photos from the different classes, and create an appropriate age/understanding bound book, and send it to the class. It's educational, they usually donate to the school..little advertisement for my company as well...LOL...The private club meets pay for the free stuffs...:0)
Around here, in "farm country", there are a few kids who started out in the city who won't know where their food really comes from. But ask the question and the answer is likely to be "From my daddy, he grows it!"
That's cool My Littlest girl loves mama's garden, We grow all her favorites, I honestly believe her health is a result of all the fresh veggies she has available to her. We buy very little from the supermarket. Unless it is something tropical. Wish I had a greenhouse set up where I could grow the bananas, mangos, and papaya she loves as well.
