Sam Levin will be speaking at TEDxOxford 2012.
Sam is a 2nd year undergraduate at Somerville College, Oxford and is our our youngest innovator speaking at TEDxOxford 2012. In 2007 Sam founded ‘Project Sprout’ with two friends from high school. Their idea was simple – to grow vegetables for the cafeterias of the schools in the district in order to help children build connections with the natural world.
The project has expanded from a 3500 square feet garden to just over 12000 square feet and now regularly donates 1000′s of lbs of produce to families in need around the region. The garden is worked by a large group of student volunteers and plays host to daily classes for other nearby students to learn more about cultivation and appreciating the environment.
