Renee's Garden Seed Donations Make a Difference
Renee's Garden donates seeds
a wide variety of organizations and
educational programs worldwide that strive
to improve social, economic and health
conditions, and promote sustainable organic
gardening. We also encourage retailers to
donate unsold Renee's Garden seeds to local
non-profit organizations at the end of the

Health, Wellness and Environmental Studies School, Jonesboro, Arkansas
The HWES School is in Northeast Arkansas where the land is flat and the primary
farming is rice and soy beans. It is in an area that is relatively poor and
rural with about 70% of the students coming from low income families. Starting
with three Bermuda grass infested courtyards and an abandoned former cafeteria,
they now have a greenhouse, three outdoor classrooms with over 20 raised beds,
an outdoor kitchen area and a classroom sized kitchen.
