"It’s a wonder. A little seed turns into a beautiful and delicious fruit. My children say, “It’s a miracle.”
In this garden and through this program, I seemed to watch many wonderful miracles. We started from hard soil. Many wonderful people just as Justin have put their effort and love on it and on us. One day in this Fall I saw that all kinds of people are harvesting their own miracles in the garden. They themselves looked like a wonderful flowers and fruits to my eye. Each distinct color of them has its own beauty and it made our garden more beautiful and abundant. It was wonderful!
The little seed let my family grow too. We as a family became more fruitful and joyful with it. I also seeded to grow with it.
Thank you all. Thank for any unseen hand to help us."

"“It is very interesting how Trauma and Poverty affect the brain and I’ve gone to many workshops on this topic. That being said I used the garden Tuesday for a student who was in semi crisis mode. He helped me pick all the red tomatoes and by the end he was calm enough to return successfully to class. Thank you for starting this garden program for our community” "
