Gabrielle Reece Keeps the Teaching Gardens Moving!

17 Feb

Athlete Gabrielle Reece has been one of our biggest supporters since Kelly Meyer founded the Teaching Gardens program. From the beginning, Gabrielle has been on hand at several of our planting events to lead school-wide assemblies in an exercise routines, getting kids jumping around, having fun, and most importantly MOVING!

Gabrielle said, “The Teaching Garden combines mentorship, nutrition, education, gardening and sustainability principles with community service and engagement. My part is easy — I get the kids moving. With every new garden, however, my goal is to reinforce the message that we need to make better choices about the foods we eat and the exercise we get. Kids need to run more, jump more and play more. The laughter, the fun and the smiles had yesterday — not to mention the gardens that resulted from all of that work! — are evidence of how projects like this can bring a community together to take its first steps toward living healthier and eating right.”

    Right here is the perfect website for anybody who wants to understand this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need
    to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject that’s been written about for many years. Excellent stuff, just excellent!
