Make dandelion crowns

How I love spring, and yes, dandelions as well. For me they are a symbol of kids and childhood. Dandelions could be the last flower available in nature, saving kids play in a world where “don’t touch nature”  culture has been taken away from children’s real experiences with nature. A real connection with nature happens from touching, feeling and getting dirty in nature.

Fiddlehead Pizza

Have you ever eaten fiddl before? Before I noticed them in my local store here in Toronto my first spring here in Canada, I didn't even know what they were. Since then I have had a lovely relationship with fiddleheads.

Here is a pizza recipe from my friends over at Norcliff Farms Inc. If you don't have any fiddleheads you can replace it with asparagus. Add a comment
