The Problem

Kids that grow their own food are more open to plant based diets, which is a far healthier approach to nutrition.

Our Plan

We serve the Carrie Steele-Pitts home. Our program is modeled after our own First Lady, Michelle Obama's "Let Move" initiative. . We are teaching children the proper way to dig, plant and harvest. We have Children to do Food Diaries and keep track of their diets throughout the growing season.
