Snoop Lion's Mind Gardens @mind_gardens Plant a seed, grow a garden, change a life! @PepperItForward

Take the pledge and support the cause at: http://www.causes.com/mindgardens Snoop Lion was first inspired to create Mind Gardens after witnessing the devastation.


Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg, thinks access to healthy food is something every child deserves. After witnessing malnutrition and its effect on children in Jamaica, Snoop Lion is taking action by launching Mind Gardens, a new community gardens project that will provide healthy organic fruits and vegetables to children worldwide. 

The mission of Mind Gardens is simple: every child should have access to healthy food. Healthy food nurtures the body and the mind, making access to nutritious food options a crucial part of helping communities to grow and thrive. With this in mind, Snoop Lion and Reed's Ginger Brew have partnered to support Mind Gardens, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building community gardens in impoverished neighborhoods. These organic community gardens will provide children with access to vital nutrients, through fresh fruits and vegetables.

Nivek Xavier's insight:

The Reggae music comes originally form Jamaica and the religion there is Rastafari. The Reggae music and the religion are so empowering that it changed one of the best american rappers into a Reggae singer. The pro of this situation is that he found a better way for  himself to help the people and give back to those in need. For me this situation has no cons becuase he is doing great with the reggae music infact he may be doing better than the Rap music and  if not he will get a lot better plus he wants to change the world for the better.

Celebrities can be advocates too! Snoop Lion is one of many that are starting their own organizations and raising awareness for issues such as access to healthy food! Check out "Mind Gardens"!

Nivek Xavier's insight:

Proving that Bob Marley might be the best Reggae artist who ever lived just like Michael Jackson might be the best Pop artist who ever lived. So many artist wish that they could be a part of a tribute to an amazing artist this big and with people who look up to him specially his family. There are Tributes to Bob Marley all over the world.

Nivek Xavier's insight:

Bob Marley for me in my opinion is the best Reggae artist of all time. Ofcourse is only my opinion many think differently but he has been the inspiration for many Reggae bands. So he might be one of the reason for the evolution and progress of Reggae.

Nivek Xavier's insight:

Reagge artist are not only doing Reagge music they are collaborating with artist of  other genres. For example the Damian Marley and Skrillex collaboration for the song Make it Bun Dem. I honestly never thought that they would do a collaboration. Two different genres getting together to make more good music for us two enjoy and dance to.
