This is Brady Eng
Food in general is a general topic that Brady has always been interested in. Through Ted Talks and many articles, he realized the lack of food in many neighborhoods across America can be helped by gardening in modern areas. Brady was inspired by one video about someone who took action in his community to grow plants on his sidewalks, so Brady decided to take action himself.
Hi, I’m Charli Firestone
Charli is a student at Windward school. She is interested in urban gardening because her brother has a garden in her backyard and it isn’t functional. She wants to create a way for urban gardens to be functional and edible. A big thing that interests me about urban gardening is food security because there are so many diseases that can be transmitted through poorly grown food.
This is Jace Kaplan
The concept of Urban Gardening has always struck Jace to be very important and impactful. Jace is a seventh grade student at Windward school that is very interested in Urban Gardening. Jace realizes that he is fortunate enough to have a healthy and secure food all around him but knows everyone isn’t as fortunate. Jace wants to solve the lack of fresh foods in food desserts like Vermont Vista and Westmont.
