DESCRIPTION

We are looking to shake things up a bit and bring back some old school learning. We want to revisit the (improved) basics that our grandparents loved and shared. Let's get some fresh air, create a better understanding of where our food comes from and get our hands dirty!

Think edible schoolyard!
