Because gardens produce healthier food. Only 2% of American children eat enough fruits and vegetables, and 1 in 3 American children born after 2000 is at risk for Type II diabetes. A garden is an introduction to the real, healthy food students and families need access to.
Because gardens can help fix America's nature deficit. With more than 80% of Americans living in cities and suburbs, we need to work harder than ever to teach the values of natural processes.
Because gardens are a living laboratory for education. Not just healthy food—a lesson on what producing healthy food requires. Not just exposure to nature—a way for children to literally harvest the fruits of their labor.
A True Seed Investment
For as little as $10, you can help a community reap all the benefits a garden has to offer. In just 39 days, we plan to raise $2500 per garden; to feed, teach, and inspire people in each of these 100 communities. Here are a few things our garden plans to do with your donations:
CREATE A CHANGE NOW is a Nevada non-profit organization that is changing the way that local families eat. We educate and inspire children to make healthy food choices that are both delicious and nutritious. CREATE A CHANGE NOW is committed to helping our children understand the importance of healthy eating by: • Educating them about where real, fresh food comes from through hands on experience in the garden.
• Teaching them about the benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables.
• Showing them simple, delicious ways to prepare the food that they have grown.
• Providing them with recipes to take home to their families so that healthy food can be a permanent part of life.
Our long term plan is to have one edible garden in every Clark County school.
