We plan on continuing to grow vegetables and fruit in our school garden with the help of students and families to learn about sustainability, hunger, the right to food and the importance of sharing our abundance with others. Food will be shared with the community and used for healthy snacks.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
