My Potato Project
The Importance of Organic
Sometimes, finding good food content isn’t easy. So much bad news, so many conflicting views. I am so glad I stumbled on “My Potato Project.” It is one of our favorite kid videos on real food. Elise gives a wonderful report on her experience of trying to grow vines on sweet potatoes, both organic and non-organic. She and her Grandma do the classic experiment of putting a potato in a glass of water to see what happens. Their results come as no surprise to those in favor of organic veggies, but we don’t want to spoil it!
We’ll let Elise tell you how it turns out (hint: it’s another example of the superior quality of pesticide free real food!)
Have you ever done an experiment with organic versus non-organic growing methods? Tell us about it in the comments!
