Happy Sweet 16 to Carson!

If you have been following along with our kids series, you have seen the amazing artwork of Carson, one of our fabulous plant-strong teens. Today is her 16th birthday and we wanted to wish her an wonderful plant-strong day!

We are so encouraged by all of the teens who come to us and who are doing wonderful things for their health and their community. Carson’s star shines very bright, and we hope that you will join us in wishing her a very happy 16th birthday!

Here is some of Carson’s artwork for our kid series:
