We need to preserve the integrity of the great ecological cycles in our practice of gardening and agriculture. The SCHOOL GARDEN is the ideal place to teach merits of organic farming to children. For children, most importantly, being in the garden is something magical. As one of our teachers put it, "one of the most exciting things about the garden is that we are creating a magical childhood place for children who would not have such a place otherwise, who would not be in touch with the earth and the things that grow. you can teach all you want, but being out there, growing and cooking and eating, that's an ecology that touches their heart and will remain important to them throughout their lives."
