"My name is Robert and I'm 16 years old. I've been working with the garden for 4 years. I've learned many lessons on gardening and responsibility. I've seen kids come unprepared and leave as responsible young adults. The garden has kept me from doing many things I'd be in deep trouble for, and I am truly surprised I've come to like the farming and landscaping. I only hope that others in my neighborhood are given the same experience since the knowledge gained can be positive and useful."
