Kudos to this mom for taking an active role in changing the way her family eats! She gets the kids involved, leads by example and is a great role model for them. They read food labels now and enjoy eating healthier.
Kava is native to the islands of the South Pacific and is a member of the pepper family.

This was my first organic, raised garden bed and compost bin. There are many benefits to having a raised bed such as: reduced back strain, better water rentention, more growing space, warmer soil earlier in the season, less soil erosion and better drainage. Raised beds warm up more quickly in the spring and drain better, allowing for a longer growing season and better growing conditions.
Adding compost to your garden helps to enrich the soil with nutrients for plant growth. Compost bacteria break down organics into plant available nutrients. The bacteria, fungi, insects and worms support healthy plant growth and who doesn't want that?!
