I was reading an interesting article the other day, it was discussing what today’s children know about plants.

The part that caused me to sit up and wonder was this line..  “Today’s children can identify about 1000 company logos but only identify 10 plants outside

I wonder how accurate this statement is?

So a quick test – could you identify the plant below?

IMGP1106

or perhaps this one.?

Thinking a little about it, brings to mind the simple realization that many  children do not really understand where much of our food comes from.

We really need to change this for many reasons, perhaps our internet radio show, can help?

We want to engage ‘Granny Growers’ and introduce them to the ‘Growing Uppers’ , to start this rolling we’re heading off to interview a few senior citizens  in our retirement community, to ask them what they learned and how they think we can help our grand children.

if you have some ideas , we would love to hear from you to… just drop us a line
