Atiya Wells was asked to observe nature for her naturalist training course, but she was convinced that there was nowhere to do that in her part of Baltimore. A Google Maps search helped her uncover a nearby abandoned park, and she decided to use that space to help her community get more connected with nature. She launched the BLISS Meadows project and was able to raise money to improve the land and teach her neighbors about healthy food, plants, and animals. Through the park's garden, 22,000 pounds of food have been distributed to the community, which is currently a food desert. Kelly chats with Atiya as well as residents who have benefited from the park, and Sprouts donates $25,000 to keep this project going.
