I know that this particular class is in Texas but I think the idea is exceptional. I always say it is important to start you children out young when learning about the environment and their health. Why not enroll them in Organic Cooking Classes. If you have the time you can even be their teacher. I know this may not be something all children are interested in but if you do it correctly you can keep them having fun and learning all at once. Do you have classes like this in your area? If not go to local schools or community centers to see if anyone would be interested in starting a program like this. This is an excellent after school activity or even a weekend thing for children.
