Diverse Experiences

Inspiring Students to Participate

We don’t just want to sell seedlings, we want buyers to witness the real personal growth and community impact of each seedling. We're selling the promise and potential in every student and a future with opportunities that many didn't realize they had. Every seedling that a student sell drives the development of practical skills, business ability and financial literacy.

Beyond the planting of trees, we want buyers to see how participants manage an end-to-end business model, coordinating all aspects of tree growth and cultivation, marketing, and distribution. When schools, business and community leaders support GHA programs, they’re helping to produce green industry champions and future environmental stewards.

Sponsoring a seedling is the all-important catalyst for success – but just the tip of the iceberg. Your support funds a comprehensive skill-building series of workshops, membership programs, certificate programs, co-op placements, and community service hours. Discover what GHA has to offer...
