When kids grow kale, kids eat kale.
They grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes.
When none of this is presented to them, if they're not shown how food affects the mind and body, they blindly eat whatever the hell you put in front of them. - Rob Finley

I've been rallying anyone with a patch of grass, as Ron Finely would say: To plant some shit.
I walk into the grocery store and feel like I'm the only one a little alarmed at the perfect lettuce, the rows of tomato soldiers, lined up, same shade, same size, same everything. I can't tell them apart.
Rifling through produce I'm eager to find something that is a little flawed, maybe even disfigured.
Remember tiny and tasty strawberries?
As if walking into the gym isn't enough, now we have jacked up, anabolic strawberries, ironically with hollow centers and completely void of any...taste?
So what's the point?
Profit profit profit.
Food is a business.
And just for minute, imagine THIS.
Every household grows their own garden, we're taking back the farm. Sending mass commercial 'farming' on the decline while FOOD, real food, is on the incline.
More is our health.
We go back to getting our hands dirty in the soil, for ourselves and our family.
Even's just a few pots on the deck.
Swap a few flowers for some culinary herbs, shrubs for some kale.
The greatest thing you can do for yourself and your family?
Grow, nurture and feed yourselves
