I truly believe we need to teach our communities to grow our own especially with children so they can value their food

In the face of climate change the biggest gift we can give our kids is to grow their own food. To become food sovereign.

We need to teach children REAL LIFE skills - and these need to take priority over out-of-context algebra and scientific formulae which most children resent learning and have no use for in later life.

There is no greater priority in our society than providing people with food. We should be reflecting this importance in how we educate small children and every child should have the skills to be able to grow their own.
