Moses Thompson reconciles kids with ecology by nurturing the whole child through horticulture. Through his school counseling program at Manzo Elementary School in Tucson, Arizona, Moses works with students to convert low-educational-value school landscaping into sustainable native habitat and intensive food production. Reconciliation ecology gardens increase biodiversity in the place students learn and play, and give the community of Barrio Hollywood access to school-grown produce. Gardening projects at Manzo also cultivate academic growth by serving as a mechanism for hands-on, project based-learning. Connect with Manzo’s ecology program at
