Every School Should have a Food Garden

We believe that food gardens should form part of every schools' curriculum.

Understanding where our food comes from is the corner-stone of self-sufficiency,

and learning how to grow our own food is vital to life.

Not to mention incredibly beneficiary to our environment and planet!
