Now is the time to step up and make a change within your community about the problems that you are seeing. We are seeing the first-hand effects of climate change on a daily basis and it is our role to do something about it. Within our own communities there are so many environmental challenges that we are facing as well, and it all starts from doing something. For me, this was learning about the food desert problem in my community, and creating small positive changes in my life to make a difference. That later developed into creating and launching The Urban Garden Initiative, which is now an international nonprofit organization. I encourage all of you to go out into your community, learn more about what is going on, and even through small changes, make a difference on the issues you care about.
