Our founder and CEO, Emmy award nominated producer and director, Avis Richards and NBC’s Today Show host and nutritionist, Joy Bauer will be speaking on April 25th about healthy living and lifestyle choices. Their talk titled, “Education Starts From the Ground Up,” will focus on current health issues, food trends and childhood obesity. Richards and Bauer will offer solutions regarding these matters that can potentially have a huge impact in the lives of school age children as well as adults.
Richards’ work through The Ground Up Campaign has donated academic gardens to over 230 schools across the country, teaching a total of 13,000 students the importance of healthy eating, sustainability and all natural agriculture. The campaign’s current goal is to contribute 1,000 academic gardens to public schools nationwide.
