As both a Mom and a farm educator, I know that the best way, hands down, to help children learn where food comes from (and to eat healthy food) is to grow it. Whether you have a farm, a backyard garden, or some seeds in a pot on your deck or in the windowsill, children love to see things grow. The first thing they want to do upon pulling a carrot out of the ground is eat it!
