Grow Your Own Pasta.. Virtually.. and Support the Troops

One of our Twitter followers, @machinefinder, recently lead us to this awesome site called How Wheat Works. The site allows users to take part in the interactive process of growing wheat. Users will plant, harvest, mill, bake, and eat the wheat they plant– all virtually, of course.

Each of the four phases take a few minutes, however, you have to wait approximately 24 hours in between phases. The site send you an email prompting you to return and complete the next phase.

Each person that completes the four-stage process, the Wheat Foods Council will donate two pounds of flour to Operation Homefront, a non-profit organization that helps provide assistance to needy U.S. troops and their families.

Check out this educational and informative site, and help a good cause at the same time!
