We have our youngest guest ever on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast this week. Kendall Rae Johnson is 7 years old and she is also the youngest Certified Farmer in Georgia. She and her mom and dad, Ursula and Quinton, own and run aGrowKulture Urban Farm.
Kendall Rae has a new book called I’m Growing Places to help encourage youngsters to get growing no matter where they live. If you’ve got children, play this episode in the car so you can listen together.
We chat with Kendall Rae and her mom about what it takes to become a certified farmer, along with great ideas for gardening with kids.
