  • Reflection Question
    Food Plant a Garden
    Besides having access to fresh herbs and vegetables, what benefits will you see from growing your own garden?

    Growing my garden helps me learn how to grow things and learn more about things in gardens.

    How about canned water instead of plastic bottled water? It's usually easier to recycle a can than it is to recycle a plastic bottle, which might not even be recyclable.
