Eat What You Grow is a project in South Africa that Mary created to teach kids and families in need how to grow their own food.  Mary will share with the audience how she turned an idea into a reality and how she is now bettering the lives of hundreds of people and growing.  By making them happy she has discovered the greatest happiness of all.  At only 10 years old Mary states “Age is just a number!  As long as you believe, anything is possible.”  A message that will hopefully inspire many youth today.
