School gardens as a way to keep migrant farm worker’s children down is not the point of the article. She was trying to engage readers and point out the absurdity (in her opinion, not mine) of the circumstances; I did not read anything that pointed to conspiracy theory.

To me, the most important issue is whether or not research has been done on the efficacy of the programs. They cost money for schools (with little of it and less time in the day), so they should be well vetted before installed. She writes that there is no evidence that school gardens positively impact test scores. That answer skirts the question of whether the gardens are successful in other, equally important ways. I'm sure you are right and good research has been done, I am just not quite as familiar with it.

Finally, I don't know the authors of The Atlantic so I won't speculate on their editorial decisions, but for what it is worth, I have seen articles from Caitlin Flannigan in the majority of last years issues.

Through fundraising, the Fluffball works to support various organizations focused on animal rescue and well being efforts across the United States. I am gratified that the nearly $17,000 that I donated and raised since 2015 has funded efforts The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation and Forgotten Horses Rescue, Inc., Los Angeles-based animal welfare charities. There is so much more to do and so many more animals to help. My goal is to donate and raise a total of $50,000 by New Year's Day 2028.

    All work and no play is an unhealthy way to live. It ultimately leads to health issues and burn out. Being mindfully proactive about rest, relaxation and fun is a prescription for health and happiness. One of my top resolutions. Here are some photos that make my case!
