Our local paper, The Marin Independent Journal, awarded our shortbread cookies, Best "Marin Made" Cookies.  They were baked from the wheat grown and milled at the Bayside/MLK Jr. Academy (a local public school).  I'm teaching the children how to grow, harvest, clean, mill and, best of all, bake with heirloom whole-wheat flour.  The children's reactions inspire me.  For example, they shouted with joy at the discovery that grains of wheat become flour through the process of milling.
