It’s that time of year when our minds are turning to all the great things we can grow in our gardens (or on our patios, or in containers) with our kids this year. But while we love growing our own our enthusiasm outstrips our knowledge, which is why we turned to Shauna MacKinnon to answer our questions around what, when and why to grow with kids in the Lower Mainland. Shauna is a local food sustainability expert and mum, and she’s all about engaging kids, community groups and companies in her quest to make the world a healthier place through our food choices. She blogs about connecting kids with nature through gardening at www.littlebeanfarms.com. We’ve gone a little long today because she had so many great, green, growing ideas!
