We’ve had an eventful few weeks!
QuvenzhaneWallis, Oscar nominated actress from Beasts of the Southern Wild, represented the American Heart Association’s Teaching Gardens at Variety’s Power of Youth event on July 27th.
Every year the Variety Power of Youth recognizes young stars who have made significant contributions to philanthropic or charitable causes.
We were thrilled to team up with Quvenzhane to help spread the message of healthy eating and good nutrition to children across the country.
Other attendees included Jake T. Austin, Abigail Breslin, Nina Dobrev and Tyler Posey representing the Ronald McDonald house, Project Sunshine, Free the Children, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society respectively.
Big thank you to Quvenzhane, and our friends at Bonnie Plants and Burpee Home grown for helping us teach kids about healthy nutrition through gardening. Check out some of our favorite photos from the event below!
