Grow Happy Day is a "back to basics" approach to emotional wellbeing.
Food literacy yields its returns in bright and eager minds, harmonious working relationships and an energized student body that can move mountains. And it's simple.
Schools across the country are beginning to integrate gardening into their classrooms, but they are also often met with challenges in maintaining these traditional raised-beds in the summer months, when food production is at its peak. This is why we have chosen permaculture as the most effective and efficient method of growing food. And once again, it's simple.
Gardens are intelligently designed to trap rainwater and require little to no additional watering, once perennials are established. Companion-planting and mushroom spore injections employ each plant species to swap nutrients, eliminating the need for fertilizing. Soil layers grow rich with nutrients and your food production increases exponentially, year after year. Cardboard and mulch smother out weeds entirely. Just select a sunlit patch of grass and watch it evolve into a food forest, one small section at a time.
