The DAD project is a series of educational workshops designed to inspire men with diabetes to eat healthily and exercise in order to reduce their dependence on diabetes medication and to get in shape. The workshops, to be held in a community garden in September and November 2015, will include inspirational words from Teague and other athletes, an introduction to gardening & nutrition, soil preparation/planting, composting, chronic disease management and reversal through diet and exercise. The project is seeking funds to make this program available at no cost to committed men from lower-income neighborhoods in Los Angeles who will benefit from this the most!

“A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.”
