Ever since becoming a parent, I've become more committed to backyard gardens. As parents, we teach our kids how to be safe and give them the skills and tools to take care of themselves. I see teaching my children how to grow their own food as imparting them with the ability for self-sufficiency and independence. There is something very empowering about knowing where your food comes from and knowing that you can grow your own to feed yourself. Finally, being sensitive to sustainability and being responsible consumers are values that we should teach our children.
