      Thanks so much for the kind words Jackie. I agree, getting our youth to garden is very important for our future, for our self-sufficiency...

      Thanks again to all of our incredible donors!

      Just to let you know, your project is great and i hope you get to accomplish your mission with every cent donated for this project. My son is an eager-beaver when it comes to vegetable gardening. He is so much engaged with our indoor container gardening of sprouts as well as in our backyard vegetable gardens. Truly, I want to emphasize that there is no reason why people must suffer from hunger. We can grow our own food, indeed as it has been proven by me for the last 40 days. Just with a little amount of soil, water and seeds, this definitely will solve global hunger!!!

      Awesome, Thanks for the kind words Jessica! In the mean time, you can help us by spreading the word to everyone in your circle who wants to get gardens into schools, and empower students with the knowledge of how to grow their own food, and share the story as they learn...

      As a volunteer, it's been wonderful working with the children and watching them and their gardens grow. Best of luck with this project. I see there's already interest from around the globe - how fitting for Earth Day!
