For those of you who read this column regularly, my grants link has become extremely popular, and is now one of the most visited pages on my website. I’m so proud of all of you who are accessing and utilizing this information to inspire healthy living in schools across the world. I’ll continue updating as long as you keep applying!
I’m super excited about Juice Plus+ LIVE! Austin! I just learned from Tim Blank that this year’s Tower Garden display will be the biggest and most interactive ever! I can’t wait to show up with my camera: the whole Green Bronx Machine team will be there. Watch out for news about our cheese hat giveaway, Tower Garden lambada dance, social media event, and we’ll even debut a sneak peek of our upcoming documentary!
Speaking of Tower Gardens and back to school, I’ve had tremendous success with the following crops: arugula, celery, romaine, peas, beans, and eggplants. The new micro green extension kit makes growing awesome and even faster for anxious learners! All of these vegetables are children’s-taste buds-friendly and inspire healthy living! I’m always interested in learning what you’re growing, how you’re teaching, and how I can be of service to you and your work. Please reach out to me directly, I love hearing from you!
Lastly, if you’re in New York City, or are planning to visit, be sure to pick up a ticket to Green Bronx Machine’s Back to School Trivia Night. This year promises to be our biggest and best event yet! And, we’re featuring a whole trivia section dedicated to Tower Garden technology, with awesome prizes to boot! If you can’t make the event, please note that Newman’s Own Foundation will be matching all donations up to $35,000.
Now more than ever, I’m proud and excited to be part of the Juice Plus+ community and all the exciting events that are happening – can’t wait to see you in Austin! I’ll be on Main Stage LIVE on Saturday morning and intend to send everyone home with a reminder of how blessed we all are, and what an amazing family we are part of!
