Kitchen Gardeners International: International Kitchen Garden Day 2006

– Posted in: Events, Recommended Links

International Kitchen Garden Day is an annual, decentralized celebration of food produced on a human-scale. It is an opportunity for people around the world to gather in their gardens with friends, family, and members of their local community to celebrate the multiple pleasures and benefits of home-grown, hand-made foods.

Have you ever met a child who didn’t know food was grown in the earth, but somehow magically appeared in the supermarket wrapped in plastic? Tragic, isn’t it?

Have you ever wondered where some of that food in the supermarket was grown, or what would happen if we couldn’t ship food from all over the world?

If so, you might want to help celebrate Kitchen Garden Day on August 27th. How, is up to you–but the Kitchen Garden website offers some ideas. Even if nothing comes to mind, you will enjoy this website if you have a kitchen garden of your own.

When dealing with frost it is always best to be paranoid. In the spring never think it is too late for one more frost to come. And in the fall never think it too early.
