Find Love in the Garden

“[My students] are never going to have a school experience that is like other kids. The garden is the one equalizer for every student…It’s the one place where they can all have equal access. In the [Learning Garden], there’s no social dynamic. It’s not ‘we’re the leaders and you’re the followers,’ it’s everybody is equal. Everybody is in it in the same way…When they find love in the garden, that’s important for them because that may be the only time they are happy the whole day.” – Special Education Teacher/Garden Team Lead, Los Angeles
