Volunteer Highlight: Justina Kraus

If you’ve volunteered on a Thursday at Olivia Park Student Garden, you’ve likely met or seen Justina and her two daughters, Jasmine and Violet. Justina is usually wrist deep in compost and weeds, or helping kids plant seeds, while Jasmine and Violet do crafts, homework or come up with a new garden game to run around and play with the other kids.

Chef Ron’s impact on local schools and Community, thanks to Alice Waters and The Edible School Yard Academy

In the Spring of 2008 it was a parent who delivered the "Edible Schoolyard" book to Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in hopes that it would find its way to the Schools Executive Chef. Chef Ron Askew was hired in 2004 to introduce whole food and wellness through food to this historic all girls school grades 5-12 located in Bellevue WA.
