    I have a big thing about food security and if you can get the children involved in the garden and learning to grow their own food they may never have to know hunger.
    They will know how to turn seeds into sprouts or food producing plants.
    They will know what it takes to grow your own food and put food on the table.

    I put together a little handbook with beginner gardening tips, geared for gardening with children. Check out the flip book at: https://sqribble.net/viewflipbook/9811/2258

    This is great! When I was a kid my parents involved my brother and I in the backyard garden, prepping the beds, planting, watering, weeding, and of course harvesting. They also did something we LOVED. They gave us a corner of the garden for our own and we could plant whatever we wanted. (My choice was always tomatoes) We really enjoyed it, and the lessons we learned stuck with us and got passed on to our own kids. Including the really important one – do NOT haul chicken manure for fertilizer in the trunk of your car. The smell will never go away. HAHAHAHAHA
