@Cassie - Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful graphic! I love it.

Thanks, too, for my recent copy of the inaugural issue of Permaculture NA Magazine : )

Imagine if when we were 5 years old we colored in a picture like this titled Mr Plumb Tree and his friends

If only we could get every class room in the world to have this diagram permanently on a wall.

Anyone know the creator of this great graphic? We are trying to incorporate it into informational signs at the Crescent City Food Forest and would like to accredit the right people/organization. I have found it all over and am having trouble tracing it back to the original creator. Thanks!

I figured I’d post these signs we are putting up at the Crescent City Food Forest. Thanks to the original artists and Jarlath Caldwell, who did our graphic work:

So in order to attempt some of this, lets see if we can lobby the Dept of Education to include it at any level of education, be it elementary schools or high schools. Or both, as what you suggest, in every classroom, perhaps right beside the image of what a balanced diet includes... ( https://reason.com/2021/01/02/the-uproar-over-the-trump-admins-dietary-guidelines-is-mostly-hot-hair/ ) Please note that I am not using this link for the article, just the image of the pyramid!!

I definitely support teaching kids how to grow food, beginning to end, in all elementary schools, and as perhaps an elective in high school, available all 4 years of HS! A food forest in the cities isn't always an easy do, but very doable in the more rural parts of the country, and world!! In kindergarten, my 3 kids all did the bean or sunflower in the plastic cup placed in a classroom window. That is a great place to start, simple, wonderous, introductory!

Anyone else feel this learning about where food comes from to be important? Necessary?
