Looking Glass has received a $2,000 from the Whole Kids Foundation to sustain and grow our Stepping Stone Learning Garden. At-risk youth in our program use the garden to learn a variety of scientific concepts as well as grow, harvest, and prepare nutritious food for the school cafeteria. Stepping Stone’s Learning Garden is an example of what is possible when at-risk youth, many of whom have been written off or considered destined for a life “in the system,” are given the opportunity and resources to change their way of thinking, coping, and interacting with the world around them. We invest in these youth in the same way that they invest in their garden; with care, time, patience, and support, they too can grow, change, and reap the rewards of their hard work. Thank you Whole Kids Foundation for your generous support of Looking Glass’ Stepping Stone program!
