Having worked in education for nearly 30 years, I see only too well how important a topic this is, especially if we are to educate children and young people about how to combat the worst effects of climate change

I agree with the petition. We have the opportunity to teach our kids whilst they're young about the sort of future they need to have.

Children need to learn early on where their food comes from and how it grows so that they value it and want to protect the planet that produces it.

Although this is for the UK, if it gets a foothold there, surely it will spread. Growing food is good for kids & everyone in so many ways!

I tried to do it when I was a teacher, but it doesn’t fit in with the national straight-jacket, sorry, meant national curriculum!
