It’s been a little over a year since Julia Roberts and her family moved into their new sustainable, solar-powered pad on Point Dume in Malibu. The home, which is just over 6,000 sq ft. features six bedrooms and five bathrooms — and is modest by Hollywood standards.

Roberts hasn’t wasted any time in putting the land to work. In a recent interview, she chatted about her organic garden — and how important it is for her children to understand how and where food comes from. “The children love it and I think it’s the best training for them,” she said. “I think when children know their food sources they’re more inclined to eat what they’re growing because they’re so proud of it. To watch my kids eat kale is a pretty proud moment for me as a mom.”

Mmm…kale (with mushrooms)! You can check out the rest of the interview with Julia — who stars in the upcoming film Duplicity with Clive Owen — here.
