a whole. Each one of us has our own stories and encounters;

some happy moments, also some scary and negative ones.

It is essential to be able to express ourselves and share with

others so that we know we are not alone experiencing the

same incidents. My team and I aim to link everyone together

is fairly new, we have accomplished more than we thought

we were capable of. We collaborated with Knox Walk

and Edmonds Community School’s community clean-up

during the summer. We created Instagram posts related

our school’s gardens. Together with the JKCS Garden Club,

students from all grades were able to get involved with

Our goal is for the younger generation to contribute to the

betterment of our environment. We want to inspire students

not only at our school, but expand our initiative to reach a

larger audience.
