“I’m a leader because when I was in third grade I started helping instead of getting in trouble. Taking care of plants taught me how to be a leader because when people weren't treating them right, I would help them out and show them how to treat them.” - Jesse, 5th grade 89% of our students say they can make a difference in their community. We didn't ask them about making a difference in the future, or as adults, but right now, as 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Thank YOU for helping us empower students to be agents of change. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOO! If you donate before the end of the year your donation will be MATCHED! Give today to help us empower 1800 students in the coming year. www.global-gardens.org/donate
“I am a hard worker because I help people. One time I helped my friend by helping her place seeds in the garden bed. I also helped my friend control the water hose because it was difficult to turn it on and off.” - Jocelyn, 3rd grade
“I am a cook because I cooked! We made salsa. We had normal onions and red onions. I had to cut it up and blend it. We also had tomatoes and some cilantro. Last year we made a smoothie with coconut water, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries and maybe grapes. I really liked the smoothie. I actually made the smoothie at home for my family on a ‘family night’. My uncle was there too!” - Faye, 4th grade
“I am a fruit, veggie, and plant lover. I always eat fruits and veggies at my house. We plant and try different things.” - Juan, 3rd grade
"I am an environmentalist. It means so much to my heart because when you harvest plants it makes you happy. I like helping the planet by picking up litter.” - Eleanor, 4th grade
"I am an accomplisher because I have accomplished learning how to plant. Food isn’t always available at a market, so it is important to learn how to plant.” - Kara, 3rd grade

Even in this chilly weather our Family Food Farm members are harvesting. So exciting to take home cilantro and some volunteer lettuce. 🌱
"I am a gardener because I work in my garden, being peaceful and helping others with their gardens. When I work in my garden I feel peaceful because it's calm. My favorite thing to do in my garden is take care of my plants, I water them and take the dead leaves off them. My mom inspired me to do gardening. She gardens at home and at the Family Food Farm. I'm planning to plant carrots, lettuce, radish, watermelon and cauliflower." - Adolfo

This fall we asked our students to think about labels. Labels they give others and labels they feel are put on them. Some were positive, many were not. But as we spent time with our students we challenged them to come up with their own labels for themselves. We are so honored to know these students and be a part of helping them to see themselves in these positive ways. As uncertain as the future may seem at times, these students give us hope for our future. "I'm a scientist because I like to experiment and investigate why things are happening and what makes things work. I like that I get to try new things I've never done, like when we do experiments and I don't think anything is going to happen and then... it happens! And it surprises me!" - Tre, 5th grade Now, through Decembr 31st all new and increased donations to Global Gardens will be matched by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation. Invest in the future, give today! https://global-gardens.org/donate/
