What is a life recipe?
An illustrated life recipe is a brainchild of mine that surfaced when I realized that the single way to instantaneously absorb pertinent information worldwide is to see it in an image, and that we can prolifically and profoundly teach one another through simple, illustrated nonfiction. Multimedia may be used. It is important that the life recipe is seen less as a "how to" and more as a "'this-is-one-way-to-do-it-and-I-know-it-works" kind of framework, although concise and well-founded. I'll soon offer a framework so that these life recipes may be created by any author-student for nearly any work-period or project.

What more needs to be said before we roll up our sleeves and grow some gardens with these children? Hopefully they won't "need" to grow their own food, but they'll live healthier lives if they do.
*Dr. Maria Montessori said that adolescents were Erdkinder, or children of the land, because of the nature of their developmental needs.
