We've started a garden with some of my high school health class students and the phys. ed. teacher on the hill above the school. It gets us outside doing something physical and teaches them how to raise their own food. We were picking out rocks today and raking around the edges of the plot so the mower can go around easily. I plan on working summer school so I'll be around for watering and weeding. We have a cistern collecting rain water beside the garden. I might let this be my gardening adventure this year - no chickens, sheep and goats to chase out of the veggies here.
