Harvesting Lessons

This article by Carrie Madren shares the story of the Shady Side Elemetary school garden club and their experiences in the gardening world.  Children are learning that food doesn’t start in the grocery store, and are planting foods in ways that are historical to their environment.  For example, planting corn with squash and beans, as the Native American’s did.  The garden club is spearheaded by–who else?–community volunteers.
