Our children are the future. That goes without saying. Raising well rounded, independent and healthy children is the challenge. Michele spent a lot of time reading in her family garden as a child. She learned the value of fresh fruit and vegetables. Her husband, the inspiration for the Mr. Kiwi series, also spent many happy moments of his childhood in his family garden in New Zealand. That is why a portion of the proceeds of the sales of the Mr. Kiwi go to the preservation and inspiration of children’s gardens.
