Earnest Hooks Jr.'s Farming Ideas and Innovations

Watering the plants, catching chickens in the morning, and harvesting fresh tomatoes — Farming is one of the best hobbies you can do to enjoy nature and practice self-sustainability. Life can be as simple as living on a farm because you have everything you need. The best thing is to get fresh food every day without the urban noise distractions.

Children should spend time outdoors, away from screens and electronics. We should encourage them to be involved in healthy and fun activities such as planting. Let them feel the fresh air, endless fun, and exercise by carrying tools, water, growing plants, pruning. With that small addition, you help them develop new skills and learn about science and nature. Let them move around, dig in the soil, get dirty and create things! With this fact, parents should practice this option for their children more often.

"A child, more than anyone else, is a spontaneous observer of nature" - Maria Montessori.
