John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ goes on a field trip to Pine Jog Elementary School in West Palm Beach Florida to learn how they are teaching kids to grow food. In this episode, you will learn about some of the sustainable ways they are using including collecting rain water, composting, and re-using commonly discarded items to grow food.
