In 2012 I started Green Teacher Network in an effort to support schools in challenged communities with basic school gardening skills.

Since then, more than 200 schools and 1500 teachers have joined the network to learn more about creating successful school gardens, to share best practices, and to discuss how to get students more engaged outdoors. I’m not an educator by training, I’ll leave that to the experts. I always saw my role as a connector, connecting teachers with gardening information, connecting them with nutrition experts, and connecting them with funding partners interested in the cause.
