The thing kids say

Yesterday I was working with a small group of grade 2 kids fertilizing and hilling up the potatoes, and took the opportunity to quiz them on what the garden means to them...

"It's just all so amazing"
"We garden to save the planet"
"What, some schools don't have gardens?  That is so sad"
"because of the Pac Choi and Kale flowers" said one kid with a mouth full of yellow blossoms!

These kids are lucky, they have been involved with Catriona and the QE school garden since Kindergarden, so it makes sense to them that people should grow food, appreciate nature, and eat well.

mmm, yummy nutritious kale flowers!
