Seeds: The Game!
Broadcast on 2015/10/10 (PT)
Ready for this? The idea for Seeds the Game was born almost 5 years ago while CEO of Grow Games Interactive and Founder of Seeds The Game, Nick Heyming, was in Peru volunteering with an organization that helped children build community gardens, called Tierra de Niños. He was approached by a grandmother in the community who thanked him for working with the kids but was concerned about children and youth who were not there, that were just eating junk food, disconnecting from their community, and playing video games for the majority of their free time. The kids working in community gardens in Peru were already activated on a deeper level and were committed to being Earth Stewards at an early age. “What about the ones in commercial consumer and video game culture?” she asked. Was there anything Nick could do about it? There was. Please join me to find out just what that “it” has turned out to be.
