Want to get kids to learn about gardening and healthy eating in a fun way? DJ Cavem Moetavation is a man of many talents -- he’s a rapper, emcee, and (wait for it)... organic gardener! He travels all over the country to teach kids about health through hip hop, and even has his own documentary From Gangs to Gardens, which you can watch a clip of above.

His organization “Going Green, Living Bling” teaches youngsters how to grow their own food, prepare it, cook it, and even sell it! Today, he’s making a juice made with apples, beets, kale, ginger and cilantro! Click here for the recipe.

To help him continue all the great work he’s doing, our friends at Lowe’s gave him a gift basket full of gardening tools AND a $1,000 gift card. In addition, our other friends at Earth Balance who make lots of plant-based foods are donating $5,000 -- and Rach even pitched in another $5,000!
