Lauren’s dream is to encourage traditional gardening practices by creating an outdoor nature classroom to share the cultural importance and uses of indigenous crops.

She will not only help establish a community garden, but Lauren also plans on producing learning materials and workshops about these traditional crops. She also plans to expand a seed bank in the community.

Lauren is passionate about empowering her community to learn about how plants can improve individual well-being.
