Their inquisitive minds, eyes wide with wonder, prompt an endless stream of questions, as they explore their world through taste and touch, sight and sound.

It is our pleasure and responsibility to nurture the curiosity and exuberance of our young people so that they can reach their full potential.


Plant a Seed & See What Grows Foundation presents a new vision for the future.

At our core is the ambition to inspire and enable children to achieve their dreams. A starting point is needed. And the Foundation starts by taking children beyond the borders of their city life.

To do so, we create hands-in-the dirt outdoor learning experiences. We promote school and community gardening, farm visits and other outdoor learning experiences.

The future of thousands of children and their families will be brighter
because your gifts make possible the work of Plant a Seed & See What Grows Foundation.
