Dear Children and Grandchildren,

While I don’t have children yet and don’t plan on having them for a little while longer, I can’t help thinking of the future I will be creating for you. I look around me and see a world that is much different from the one I want for you. We see a world full of excess waste with trash every where and consumption on the rise. At the same time I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

With that in mind I want to leave you with the desires of our family. We have always been growers, while not farmers, we have always grown plants and helped others. We take pride in our love of helping others and the time we take to nurture each plant. I hope that all of you will have that same drive and use it to make the world a better place.

To help you with that I promise to make changes to my own life to help lower our own ecological footprint. I will lower my use of plastics, water and lower my consumption of meat. At the same time to help native species I will grow native plants to aid the pollinators. I want to make these changes so that you won’t have my world but the world of my parents. I want all of you to have a healthier world then the one I have, I want you to be able to see the world where the sky can be filled with monarch butterflies and one where we can walk miles with out seeing litter. Most importantly I want you to have a world where we don’t have to fight over the ethics of littering and I hope that my promise helps us reach that world a little sooner.
