It's the beginning of the school year here in Australia and that
means one thing in Leonie Shanahan's life...
A brand new year to transform the lives of kids and encourage them to eat more fresh fruit & veggies. Her award-winning Edible School Gardens program has influenced more kids on the coast than I could point a bamboo pole at.
I love the work Leonie does. In fact, it was volunteering at one of her school garden projects where I had my first experience making a no-dig garden.
This week I share an interview with her, where we chat about her exciting new Edible School Garden DVD project, how you can get started with a school garden at YOUR kid's school, and the surprising (& heartening) effects growing food has had on children she's worked with.
This really is a good news story and shows what a difference we can have when we begin where we are, in our own community.
Have a fantastic day, Sprouter!
