Hi: My two Grandchildren go to Freshwater school and participate in the gardening program. My husband and I have been raising our two Grandchildren going on 8 years and they have been raised around lots of veggies and fruits. They love to garden with Grandma and help her can the vegetables also. Thank you, Cris Hollen for such a wonderful program you have put together for our children who go to Freshwater school. I know that they will all reward you by passing on their knowledge they have gotten from you. THANK YOU AGAIN, Ms. Hollen

I would love to hire a landscaper for my ranch who can help me set up gardens like this for my family. Does anyone know how I can reach Ms. Hollen?

If "Mother Nature" was a mortal... she would be Chris Hollen! Like a magic garden nymph, she sprinkles her love over the Earth and wonderful things grow! She enriches peoples lives in so many ways and if she could, she would feed and nurture the world from her gardens and groves, beautify the world with her flowers, and cure all that ails you with that which grows from the soil. Lucky are those whose lives she touches!

I don't get it "shut up hippie", friends and family aren't allowed to give chris a pat on the back for doing a great job? Chris never called herself a farmer, she arranged a childhood developement program. You're really great at missing the point.
