This lack of connection between us and our food is even more pronounced in our children. They have little to no idea what it takes to grow and care for crops.
That's why this season is the perfect opportunity to get outside with your family and share some time in the garden. If you don't have space for an actual garden, why not plant some seeds in individual pots and tend to them throughout the season?
There are countless plants that can be grown in small pots, from tomatoes to flowers.
Planting with our children teaches them so many vital ideas. It shows them the connection we have with nature and the world around us.
It teaches them the value of growing one's own food and being self-sufficient.
