Jon Bon Jovi Soul Kitchen Herbal Garden
Because her local food pantry lacks the outdoor space for a personal garden, Christine’s Gold Award project focused on donating a portable organic herb garden to the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Kitchen, which is a restaurant that allows its customers to pay for meals through community service. Christine taught kindergartners the importance of healthy eating by letting them plant herb seeds for the Soul Kitchen and their own personal gardens. These plants were cared for and brought to the Soul Kitchen to be utilized in their restaurant, helping to feed those who normally cannot afford formally prepared food. Congratulations on earning your Gold Award Christine!
