GARDENING WITH KIDS: Beginners Try to Grow Food During Pandemic

We decided to start a garden and try growing some of our own food while we are quarantined / sheltering in place / staying home in Northern California. We are beginners at this, so helpful gardening tips are appreciated! We thought it would be a good lesson for our worldschooling kids to learn to plant their own food. We are also growing luffa gourds, so we can have our own zero-waste sponges!

Since we are currently staying home, we weren’t able to get potting soil, fertilizer, or other supplies at a nursery or home improvement store. We are just making do with what we have. We hope our crops grow! Follow us along into the summertime to see how it works out.

Now that we are temporarily living in the countryside, we are trying to take baby steps towards living a more sustainable lifestyle. We are living in an off-grid cabin with solar power and spring water. We are happy to be able to get outside in the dirt while we stay home and flatten the curve. Stay healthy!

Aloha! We are a worldschooling family traveling the world full-time with two young kids. We are George, Heidi, Kaisho (6) and Harumi (1). Our home base is the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. We’ve been living a nomadic lifestyle for the past 12 years. Once we started traveling, we just wanted to keep on exploring!

We like to make new friends, eat local foods, and immerse ourselves in culture. We strive towards a natural, minimalist, zero-waste lifestyle. We’re not perfect, but we keep trying!
