I was a regular volunteer at The Edible Schoolyard over a decade ago now when I was living in the Bay Area.
That experience played such an integral role in my own growth as a local food systems advocate. Life changing for me and the kids at the school…Thank you Alice Waters … you’ve made a difference in the lives of so many. ♥
To check out how gardening with children changes lives, check out the Edible Schoolyard feature on the Today’s show.
After the kids’ Spring Break civics lesson at the State Capitol, the next lesson will be on Government Shutdown. And in the coming weeks, we will need a visit to our own City Hall…
Herbal popsicle success!
Though my daughter *did* say she liked just the plain grape popsicles without the onion/elderberry syrup. I love finding ways to take care of my children. Hopefully this, coupled with the warm water footbaths, chest rubs and herbal steams will help her croup.
No doubt about it, we’ve a long way to go with school lunch, but seeing Elmo in the kitchen with White House Chef Mr. Sam made me smile.
