    I dont think it's the "end of the world" if some preschoolers or kindergarten children get to see how a thing or two is planted (and, ideally) grows; but - really - I think there are so many other things that would be so much valuable to school kids (of all ages/stages).  I don't think too much time should spent on, say, thinking a whole lot about vegetables. (I'm thinking of American schools here.)

    People can learn to do/grow whatever they want to when they're not in school, but I don't think valuable and limited school time/resources should be spent on growing food.

      ME, thank you for posting. I am curious then, what should kids learn in school besides the 3 Rs?

    I think there's a lot of knowledge in understanding how plants grow. It doesn't necessarily have to be just vegetables or it terms of plants to feed yourself. In fifth grade I learned a little about photosynthesis and how plants grow from seeds but I think it would create a different sort of thinking toward food waste and the destruction of the environment if kids understood how much work goes into growing a plant.

      Chloe, I agree, I think it would open doors for children to have that as an option and understanding the cause and effect of growing your own vegetables.

    Yes.  They should know how to do it.  Not to prepare for any disaster, but just to learn about how it is done--to be educated.  They might like it!

      I agree. I wouldn't hurt to know how to garden. They might like it.
