Organic Food Gardening

 

 

With the help of a local organization, Love and Carrots, we have been growing our own organic vegetables; we have already harvested micro greens, spinach, kale, collard greens, snap peas, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, beets, arugula, lettuce, herbs, okra, carrots, and more. We also have regular lessons in our garden with a farmer, which helps the kids have a deeper understanding of the food gardening process.  

We also endeavor to inspire our kids to think about the importance of urban agriculture.  Urban farming for kids is not just about planting a seed and pulling something out of the dirt--it’s about showing kids the different possibilities and opportunities of urban living.  We want our kids to look at our city landscape and see the possibilities for us and for the environment.  Cities will have to change if we want a more sustainable future, and kids can and should be a part of that change.
