GL Homes treated Best Foot Forward students to an afternoon at Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach. After a tour of the grounds, Mounts showed the socially distanced group how to grow their own fresh produce from kitchen scraps.

Best Foot Forward works to improve educational outcomes for young people who are in foster care or who have aged out of the foster care system. The students who joined our Food for Thought project have aged out of foster care and attend local universities.

Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County is a 14-acre living plant museum with 25 unique garden areas. The gardens emulate what Palm Beach County residents can grow in their own spaces large or small.
