    Can't imagine why on Earth anyone would click dislike on this guy's videos. He's providing great information in a concise and entertaining way – for free.

    Great video John, and great initiative by the school. Like you, I wish my school had 'agriculture studies' when I was growing up!

    Obviously the school has space for a comprehensive program, but you don't need as much as an acre to get started – even a school green house is better than nothing, and would really help restore the connection of where food originates.

    @GospelTruth37059 Well said, particularly our youth need this type of learning instead of watching nonsense on TV and playing video games

    Nothing's quite as annoying as hearing some damn dog yapping in the background. This may have been a great video, but I was too distracted to watch most of it.

    Hey John Do You always ask Permission from the Schools Stores and Other Places like that?

  • powrxplor69 1 year ago

    Man, that junior high is cool, wish I would've gone to a school like that.

    @KralZltko I totally agree @growingyourgreens could post the videos on a wordpress site or something as they are posted and then also have a paypal link on there as well as links to referenced places/resources.

  • Kristin Bennett 1 year ago

    @growingyourgreens I love your logic…getting this message spread as far as possible is an awesome way to make an impact… have you thought about having a site too that links to the information you discuss? If you want help let me know…I'd love to help, maybe in a blog/directory format.
