We asked some of the women to write letters about the garden project and what it has meant to them, and we got so many beautiful responses we wanted to share with you.


As The Garden Grows

I grow as a woman
a mother
a child
a grandmother
a sister
a friend
a human being as a whole

As the garden grows

I am growing to be a better me
I am growing to love myself
I grow confident to

take initiative
have ambition today


As the garden grows, I am growing as a person. I have eleven months clean … I am getting married … I got the manager position … but more importantly, I am learning to love myself.

… it makes me think about my life, anew seed that is planted in me. I am so grateful to wake up every morning and see the growth.
