Who Are We?
We are the O'Connor's - a homeschooling family living on a small farm in Ontario, Canada. Our entire family has been involved in teaching children about the joys of gardening for the better part of 5 years. Our children have grown up teaching other kids and out of this, Beag was born. Beag is all about kids teaching kids how to grow their own food and flowers.
What is Beag?
When our children decided that gardening and farming was important to them, then it became important to us too. We started with a garden and then kept adding, growing, learning and even teaching as the idea of Beag grew along with every planted seed in our gardens. Then it was our children's turn - they took the idea and ran with it and now these kids are helping more kids learn to grow their own veggies and flowers.
Quite honestly, we just thought that it was awesome-cool that the Gaelic word for 'little' is so close to the english word for 'big'. And since we are the O'Connor's, it just seemed like a good thing to name our 'big' experiment on our 'little' piece of land 'Beag'.
We also like the idea that the future of food in our world will come about because the 'little' children today will create the 'big' changes needed in our food economies and systems.
Big changes start because someone plants a tiny seed. Join us as we hope to make 'Beag' things happen from our little corner of the world!
