The summer reading lists are out

The summer reading lists are out, and for those interested in gardening as a means of better nutrition, education and engagement, The Power of a Plant by Stephen Ritz is a good read. A teacher in some of the country’s poorest schools, Ritz documents how incorporating gardening and plants into his curriculum played a key role in increasing the graduation rate of students from 17% to 100% and improving attendance to 93% at his South Bronx high school.

INMED has experienced equally impressive outcomes with its school gardens in Brazil, Peru, Jamaica and South Africa. Learn more at https://inmed.org/what-we-do/.

GlobalGiving Update

We made our goal! Thank you to everyone who contributed to INMED’s GlobalGiving campaign to raise $5,000 to kick start our Financing for Climate-Smart Aquaponics in Jamaica project. We not only made our goal but surpassed it by $808.93! Follow this program on our Facebook page, where we’ll profile the farmers participating in the program. The project is scheduled to launch in June.
