Thoughtful Thursday

Happy Thursday!

Today I’m shining light on some thoughtful, green & charitable work done by a great group of people at Southwest Airlines.

Years ago, Jaime Ibarra brought his urban gardening skills to his workplace & his passion has become contagious. 

Jaime and my dad, John, joined forces to make Jaime’s Garden come to life.

Together they collected leftover food from employees to make compost for their garden and turned a portion of the grassy area outside the SWA building into a garden.

The two gardeners, along with the help of other employee volunteers, have turned this garden into a way to help others.

This concept I love!

Everything grown is 100% organic and all of the vegetables harvested from the garden will be donated to local food banks.  Those who are struggling and in need of assistance will get fresh, organic food … thanks to a big idea that turned into Jaime’s Garden.

Jaime’s Garden is growing.

Jaime’s Garden is making our world a better place … one vegetable at a time.

Do you have a story to share? Email me & I’d love to showcase how you have been inspired to help others!
