Know Where Your Food Comes From!
Many of our children today can not begin to describe to you where food comes from. My students in middle school tell me that it comes from the market. If I probe them further, they shrug thedir shoulders and say, "I don't know!" When you attempt to explain to where and how it is actually grown, they respond, "Whatever...I don't care. This is really boring!"
It's like an older, more experienced woman once taught me, "Somebody, somewhere, needs to teach someone something." She was absolutely right! We need to teach children the importance of growing your own herbs, veggies and fruits.
