Your Green Corner: Sprouts Growing Sprouts

sharon_grandkids_planting_seedsShowing by example and sharing are among the best ways to teach kids. Sharon Williams from our Santa Monica office shared this photo of her grandchildren, whom she teaches lessons on taking care of Planet Earth when they visit her. "I showed them how to plant seeds and start their own garden. A week later, it's spouting and they are so excited," she said. She's teaching them to eat right too; they're watering organic lettuce in this photo.

The next lesson, she says, is: "Why we should not use plastic bags and the dangers they cause."
