Teaching kids about growing food

This is a really awesome project by chef, Alice Waters. What a great concept and so important in today’s world. Its something that we take for granted, understanding where our food comes from, when the reality is that so many American kids don’t understand that carrots grow in the ground! Anyone can be taught to be self-sufficient and growing our own food is the direction we should all be going in. Honestly, its scary how large some strawberries are that we buy in the grocery store when you compare to wild strawberries. Anyways, watch this video from the Today show…I think they did a good job choosing to team up with Jake Gyllenhaal, just another reason I love this.
