I am a way proud father of three kids and four grandchildren. I raised my kids on natural foods and we always had a garden.
Early on, I was a poor cook, and my kids still tell the story of one of my early "natural foods special" dinners—squash soup—which they rejected as inedible. But things improved and now we are often together to share a meal that includes veggies from our garden and food from growers we have known for many years. The first year after college I was a teacher at a high school and started a garden with the kids where we grew veggies and sold them in the parking lot. I love to see kids embrace their natural interests with enthusiasm and I love to see them healthy. It's great to see firsthand what the enjoyment of fresh healthy food and the experience of a garden can mean for kids. We can bring more of that to the world with Whole Kids Foundation.
