Description
A grandmother and her grandson share a love for gardening. They explore different plants including fruits, vegetables, and medicinal herbs. They also examine the bugs that come with gardening life including both good and bad bugs. One of grandma's favorite plants is cannabis. She uses the plant both for healing and for relaxation. She teaches the grandson about the reasons why some things are just for grownups. Children are smarter than we give them credit for (I know my grandchildren are!) and this book is a way for them to "just say know" when it comes to cannabis. Now that cannabis is legal in a majority of US States and opening up worldwide, it's time to start talking to our children about cannabis. Children are smarter than we give them credit for. That is the largest failure of D.A.R.E. when they used the motto "Just Say NO!" when they should have said, "Just Say KNOW!". Don't hide your consumption from your children. It's time to have a conversation with your children about cannabis and this book is a perfect way to talk about it!
About the author
Susan Soares, Executive Director, C.A.R.E.: Susan has been an entrepreneur all of her adult life. She had a clothing company for 10 years, opened a hair salon in Newport Beach, produced a feature film, created an alternative content program with a national theatre chain and currently is the Executive Director of the 501 (C) (3) C.A.R.E. (Cannabis Advocacy, Rallies, and Events) Susan has been a long time cannabis activist. She spent more than half of her life as a very conservative religious leader. After struggling with a severe injury for 2 years she found medical cannabis which not only provided her much needed pain relief but helped open her mind and heart to new possibilities. By chance, she got the opportunity to be on the popular iHeartRadio phenomenon The Woody Show. During the course of the interview, Woody asked how to talk to children about cannabis. Her answer was disappointing to her because she didn't. She resolved to make sure that grownups had a tool to talk to the children in their lives about cannabis in an open and honest way and was the inspiration for the book "What's Growing in Grandma's Garden. As a serial entrepreneur, she has worn many hats including expertise in digital media, marketing, social media, startups, advertising, business development, public policy, market research, film production, public speaking, and cannabis cultivation.
