“You can’t force a plant to grow but you can support a healthy environment for the plant to grow in.”

“On salad day, where we make a big salad with the lettuce we planted at the beginning of our garden session, I have a conversation with my students about the importance of nourishing our bodies with healthy food. The vitamins and minerals found in leafy greens isn’t only good for our bodies, but it’s good for our minds and spirits as well. Eating food that we grow ourselves is an act of self care. We all deserve the opportunity to nourish our bodies.”
-Oliv Brown, Garden & Nutrition Educator
