* Do some families harvest food from gardens in backyards or out on balconies?

* Do any students live on farms which harvest crops like apples, corn, wheat, or canola?

* Do some of the mothers make jams or pickles from food purchased at the local market?

* Do any students go out to a pumpkin farm to get a pumpkin for Hallowe’en?
