Composting Unit Study

My weekly column is a unit study on composting. Just in time for spring!
If you've never composted or if you live in an urban area, I encourage you to still be open to introducing composting to your homeschool studies. Composting can be a wonderful addition to your science studies, in a very natural way. Both the novice and the urbanite can pull it off. This unit study introduces all the resources necessary for success.

Food Routes

From my friend Linda S.

Hi! I thought this was so cool and that you might like it...

If you go to the web site, and click on FOOD ROUTES, you can put in your zip code or state and find farmers markets, u-pick (raspberries in Fowlerville in August), and other things...neat.

Happy eating...Linda

Homeschool Blog Awards

The 2006 Homeschool Blog Awards are up and running. You have until Friday (Apr. 13) to vote. They have a Thrifty Homeschool category, so especially make sure to check out those blogs. I'm really happy to see this category!!!

I've been terribly negligent of this Thrifty Homeschooler blog. I guess I better get on the ball so I can be nominated next year!
