Hello everyone,

Here is a couple pictures from the Florida clean up day that we had this morning but first my cool new shirt with my new bling.

For those of you who don't know we have 2 community garden projects that is called #EATING project and we started with support from Mgoblogers so the pictures you are looking at are from the First garden in me and Martavious Odoms hometown Pahokee, Florida. It is called the H.O.P.E. Garden

Our new project here in Michigan is in Flint and we are putting a garden on an Alumni' grandma's old houses lot and also workign with 2 Elementary Schools to create gardening programs through the school year and summer to get the lead out their bodies.

You can read more and support Flint #EATING effort by coming to help and at our gofundme at https://www.gofundme.com/feedflint (or feedflint.org)

Everyone I know the loss was hard but the guys really played their best and this was a total shocker.   With that being said we are only going to get stronger and losses like this only bring the team closer. 

1.  Flint -  this Saturday (10/24) we will have a clean up day at our new site - weather permiting. We have five lots by the elementary school.  On Cottage Grove on the east side.  I hope some of you can make it and if anyone knows a lot about gardening and winterizing can you inbox me.  New email is [email protected]

If you have a mower or tools that will help out a lot.  We are working on getting our tools for up here and applying for grants.

 

2. Pahokee - You may recognize a good friend in the front row of the first picture (kneeling).  We had 50 youth ouy and the mayor, the football team with the national honors society.  We planted 20 guave trees, and some coconut trees and the back of the banana trees.  Cleaned up and made our city beautiful.

Yeah, he already did one a few months back, but it's always good to get the word out about the great work he and other Wolverines have been doing.

(I realize there's a topic about the Yahoo article but I wanted to highlight the Reddit AMA that's hopefully still going on - mods, apologies in advance if I'm piggybacking with an uncessary separate forum topic)

Yahoo! has an article about Vincent Smith's (and friends) Hope for Pahokee project. The writing is lacking a lot of information on the actual project and mostly focuses on "the Hit that changed the world."

The name of his project isn't even mentioned in this article!

I guess Yahoo! at least tried to spread the word, right?

Just wanted to share that Vince was in A2 today promoting the Pahokee Garden and selling Tshirts to raise money for said project. He was kind enough to stop by and tailgate with us for about an hour. We introduced him to our "bag omelette" and he took some Pics with my 8 yo son. It was pretty cool to ask him about what he thought of the team, his Recruitment and time here at Michigan, and his career after CFB. Evidently he has an agent and is looking at options including the CFL, Cleveland Browns and another team that escapes me since I've been up for 26 hrs. Anyway, like Odoms, he is a stand-up guy and Is poised for big things. Regardless of what happens with football, he has the mentality to be successful in Whatever he does. Love supporting his cause and hope others had a chance to see him today. Mr Smith is also Still looking like he can block linebackers in pass protection!

It feels good to be back in Ann Arbor for the first game. If any one has a spot we can hangout on saturday and use for head quaders to sell our T-shirts that will be good. Thanks for the support.

Just happened to notice that Vincent Smith is hosting an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit right now to promote his kickstarter for a painting program.

You'll need a reddit account to ask him questions, but it should be entertaining for us. I imagine there will be at least a dozen questions asked about the Clowney hit.
