PTP327 - Healthy Schools
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk about ways to create healthier more sustainable schools. As you can imagine, Shoshana makes sure to have a voice in the decisions that are being made in their children’s school. Everything from nutrition, fitness, mindfulness, and waste is important to us in our family, and we want our children having those values carried over into their school experiences from themselves and their friends. The tricky part is how to institute change without getting pushback before you even open the door; something she has done somewhat elegantly. Hopefully, by the end of this episode, Adam feels like he understands why Shoshana spends this time at the school instead of with the family. 

Please share this episode with any value-driven parents who want to see a change in their children’s schools. You can find it posted on Instagram and Twitter (@planttrainers) as well as on the Plant Trainers Podcast Facebook page.
