In addition to a economic crisis, our country is in the midst of a public health crisis in terms of eating too many calories and not getting enough physical activity. I work with childhood nutrition and obesity prevention programs. Gardens are a wonderful way to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables that children and adults eat. Gardens can get children interested and excited about eating the produce that they've planted and cared for. Working in family or neighborhood gardens helps get children outside (away from TV and computer screens) and gives them a huge sense of accomplishment.
