Thank you for all of your help with our living local segment about the Children’s Garden at Magnolia Plantation.  You have such good energy, and I really enjoyed learning about all of the amazing things you are doing for children across the Lowcountry! Keep up the great work!

You were the runaway hit of our 4K Academy! Thank you so much for presenting on STEM to our teachers — they loved you and your information, Crystal.  We are grateful that you came and passed on such great information.
