Great website. Thanks big time for starting this kind of a school for our city kids who are “growing up on asphalt and cement” and never have seen a bean, a carrot, real milk or corn in its/their original form, let alone held any of the above in their hands. This is terrific.
Thank you for this comment, Robert!
