If you want to save the world (quick nod to C89.5 fave Swedish House Mafia), you’re gonna have to get your hands dirty. That’s the theory behind SCCA’s latest video for C89.5’s Do One Thing initiative.
In our third video, Nathan Hale seniors Sierra McArthur and Maddie McGriff explain why they chose gardening for their Do One Thing thing. Growing your own produce is a great way to eat healthier food, reduce your grocery bill and, hopefully, cut down on the amount of bee colony destroying pesticides entering the environment.
This video is another example of how parental involvement can play a positive role in the choices young people make. Both Maddie and Sierra’s mothers are into gardening, so it was natural for them to follow suit. Two high school girls willing to get muddy, break nails and battle slugs. Pretty cool, if you ask us.
We’ll check back with the girls in September to see if they can really grow ripe, full-sized tomatoes in Seattle.
