Why are we teaching children about the planets in our solar system before we’re talking about the chemicals in our brains? We don’t know either. Our mission is to teach the ways in which the very act of growing food boosts feel-good chemistry in the brain, even before you eat it. No space for a garden? We’ll send students home with seeds in a pot. Room to spare? Let’s trade in that silly old front lawn for your very own Food Forest. Any which way, let’s grow some food.
