Gardening, Soup, Parenting

I've thoroughly enjoyed the time together with my daughter Emma as we wrote our book Grow Gardeners: Kid-Tested Gardening with Children.

Our latest book-related adventure was going to a commercial kitchen to make 60 litres of soup for a soup festival where we promoted vegetable gardening and gardening with children.

Soupalicious features chefs from around Toronto. Not being a chef, I felt a bit intimidated. But the event raises funds for Plant a Row · Grow a Row, a program that encourages gardeners to share the harvest with those in need.

While not a chef, I know about planting and growing…so that helped us get started on a trip outside of our comfort zone!
