Jacob Lotodo was first introduced to Thrive in 2012 when he started his journey as an intern, learning about growing health. In the past year, Jacob has accepted the title of being a husband, a new father and the partnership coordinator for Thrive’s local partnerships. Jacob has started many community garden projects, most recently with a group of people that are deaf and another with a large anglican church. Together, the Gay Lea Foundation and Thrive will work together to bring knowledge and practical skills to students in 8 new schools. Students and educators will be supported to create and maintain sustainable Life Gardens that reduce the school’s food costs, increase nutrition and health for students and school administration and provide a source of revenue generation for students to purchase school supplies.
