Why should people grow their own food?

Also, it’s much easier to grow your own food because you don’t have to spend any money.That’s why people should grow their own food.

Farms

Farm brainstorm

On factory farms cows don’t eat grass. They actually eat corn there. On this kind of farm the machines do the work. It’s like prison. In a free range farm cows eat grass and roam freely. Humans do the work. They both slaughter their animals.

You can watch some videos about factory and free range farms here:

We learned how different food affects our body.

Grains: gives us energy to learn and play.

Vegetables: helps you get healthy and gives you energy.

Fruits: helps you get better from illnesses and colds.

Dairy: helps you get healthy bones.

Meats and Beans: makes your muscles grow.

Cooking

In Urban tree we made food. On the first day we made some sweet we made two kinds of potato fries. One kind we made was salt, our other kind we made was cinnamon. I like the cinnamon kind better. The other day we made butter nut squash with apples. I thought that was very” different”. But other than that I thought it was great.
