The Oct/Nov Organic Gardening has a wonderful article, 6 pages, on kids,
healthy food and school gardening. I wanted to post it here but it is not on
their website???? I have complained because I wanted to email it to people
I have asked OG to make it available as a hardcopy, also, to give to others.
I have a free, one page, document, Proven Practices for School Gardens, on
organic, no-till gardening. With no-till there is no need for power
and there is no hard physical labor needed so children, the elderly and lazy
adults can garden very easily. Send request to firstname.lastname@example.org_
(mailto:email@example.com) The OG article makes a strong case for schools
involved in gardening and the page tells them how.
Another interesting article is in the Oct 05 Progressive Farmer magazine.
It is about a book "Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from
Nature-Deficit Disorder" by Richard Louv. America's children never go
experience nature. Therefore, gardening is even more important.
Here is an interesting website covering gardening in Europe:
