Kimberly B. - Gardening for You and Me
Kimberly is from Lee County and attends Florida SouthWestern State College.
An avid gardener from a young age, Kimberly wanted to share her passion for growing food and flowers as the focus of her Gold Award. When she realized there was an abandoned planting bed at her school, she formulated a sustainable project that involved ESE students and their teachers in the creation and maintenance of a flourishing garden. The project helped beautify the campus while providing nutritious homegrown food and promoting healthier eating habits.
“From this project, I learned how important a leader’s role is. I developed communication, strategic decision making, self-motivation, and time management skills.”
