Hello everyone!

I am writing to you with the great news that we sold our first crop!  It is starfruit and passion fruit.  This is amazing and we wanted to write to say thank you and share some more pictures.  Our garden is going strong and the orchard and native plants are growing BIG.  We are still doing our Juvenile Justice program and I spent a week down in Florida over thanksgiving.  The kids in the program doing their hours in the garden seem to be liking it and are excited to come work, which you have to keep that between us because they might not keep it with their image. We had a work day with the community and everyone is in bright spirits.  It has been a long road and we couldn't have done it with out the support from our MICHIGAN family.   

You may not know what it means to people to see all this happen.  It means a lot to us and I am proud to be able to give back to my community.  We have more gardens in the works up in Michigan and we are looking at Flint and Ann Arbor as well as Detroit.  We started #EATING to help all athletes and we will keep working to put as many gardens as we can.  You can continue to support us if you want to volunteer your time to help us get organized or you can share our new crowd funding campaign on your social media (which is at teameating.com ) and let everyone know that they also can show their support and get a really cool shirt.  Lets make #EATING as big as we can because we really believe in what we are doing just by the big impact in my little town to how we can change everything for players and communities across the nation.
