Many children have no clue as to where food on their plates comes from. From groceries, they may say.

In Holland, a school garden system has been in place for over 100 years. Each year, primary schools take their kids to the fields where the youngsters will learn how to sow, grow and cook food. From classroom to nature, they will learn something important with their hands, the cycle of life. Dirty your hands and boots and enjoy your own harvest. How to grow vegetables? What better ways to fight obesity and create biodiversity?! The kids will get close to nature and animals.
