Our Patron's Vision
One of the most rewarding experiences for a child is to discover the wonder of growing plants: gently planting a seed,
eagerly waiting for it to sprout, and then excitedly seeing the seedling burst up through the dirt.
It's mesmerizing. All their senses are captivated. It stirs within them a sense of pride, accomplishment and a feeling of importance. It's a priceless moment that can anchor and inspire them for a lifetime. Sadly, too few children get to live such moments.
And that is what I am so passionate about—creating
opportunities for children to be inspired by the breathtaking wonders of the natural world around them! Plant a Seed & See What Grows Foundation has been a dream of mine for over 20 years. Now, through the Foundation we are creating moments of inspiration that can last a lifetime—in classrooms, in school gardens, and by farm visits.
I invite you to join me in opening up a world of possibilities for our children. A world where their ideas, dreams and hopes turn into reality; where their receptive young minds can grow and thrive, and they can become confident and caring young adults who are committed stewards of planet earth.
So, please read on and discover how Plant a Seed & See What Grows Foundation is spreading seeds of learning, literacy and inspiration. Check out the Plant a Seed—Read! article to learn about our new literacy project for youngsters.
Get involved in our Educate. Inspire. Thrive! activities that use the Foundation's
classroom resources and hands-in-the-dirt planting kits. These and many other projects are all possible because of your donations of Treasures, Time and Talent. For that we THANK YOU.
With you in creating a better world for children everywhere,
Founding Patron & Board Chairman
