Whole Kids Foundation has launched Starting with Soil, a free tablet-based organic education app available via Google Play and the App Store, to provide a fun way for kids and parents to learn what it looks and feels like to grow food in harmony with nature. Slow-motion video allows kids to behold bees pollinating and butterflies extracting nectar with startling zeal. Time-lapse photography captures the way apple, radish and bean seeds become seedlings that burst through topsoil in vibrant color. Young users can plant seeds, build a compost pile and drag a microscope over organisms in soil to get a better look. Whole Kids Foundation created the app because it believes it’s critical kids understand where food comes from, the processes it goes through to land on our plates and the significant effects these processes have on our environment, communities and bodies.
