    Hi, I absolutely love all that you’re doing as a family, focusing on child-centered learning! I’m an educator, am African American and of American Indian & Gullah ancestry, and my parents were both educators. I took a “road less traveled” when I earned the Certificate in Permaculture Design – a 2-week, 80 hour course – in 2000. Next, I completed a 6-month hands-on, residential apprenticeship at a university farm. The apprenticeship focused on growing, harvesting & marketing fresh, organic vegetables & fruits. Now, I’m based outside the states. I write all of this as a prelude to the following: All cultures throughout the world have or had their basis in producing their own food. It’s a matter of survival & sovereignty. And we all need food! Especially food that we know is chemical-free & nutrient-dense (due to our careful tending of the soil or other medium in which it grows). In reading your info-packed website, I didn’t find any mention of your son & his cousins enjoying preparing foods or growing veggies. I want to respectfully & lovingly encourage you to find some prompts that can lead your young folk to check out the wonderful world of heirloom & open-pollinated seeds, and of the incomparable taste of biting into a sun-warmed tomato or fresh pea off the vine (and the pleasure & pride of having grown it themselves!). The current pandemic situation in which we’re living would seem to be a reminder that healthy foods are the best medicine, and that if we want to truly raise up independent youth, they’ll need to cultivate a love for, understanding of & commitment to becoming Food Independent, in order to be truly free, and brimming with healthful energy for enjoying life and our world to their fullest. Much love to you!
