Program objectives

The Green Heart Project

The Green Heart Project (GHP) is a 501©3 non-profit organization that builds school garden programs in the Charleston area. With a high value placed on health, education, and building community, GHP pairs local volunteer mentors and students to grow school gardens through in-school and after-school programs, primarily in schools serving low-income populations. In doing so, it connects students to local food systems, while reinforcing academic standards, building interpersonal skills and cultivating community.

Monmouth County Master Gardener/Montessori Elementary programs

As an advocate for just and sustainable food systems and for school-garden curriculum, I am committed to furthering edible education programs in my area (central coastal NJ).  I would like to see existing programs strengthened, as well as new grassroots and community activities started.  As a resident of the densely populated Long Branch area of Monmouth County NJ,  I have found that while there are many small programs that have been started, there is still much work to be done in this area.
