|by, Shivani Sharma (5th Grade)This artwork is about Healthy Lifestyle = Healthy EnvironmentPlants and animals, just like people, enjoy being outside in the fresh air. When plants are grown in open farms with non-GMO seeds, organic and natural fertilizers, they produce healthier crops.Animals such as cows, sheep, goats and chicken, when raised in open areas, feeding on fresh grass/feed are healthier and not stressed, produce better milk, eggs etc.They do not need growth hormones to produce better products.We can encourage farmers by buying local organic produce, milk and eggs, in farmer’s markets and stores that promote local farmers and businesses.|
