This week at The Pollination Project, we recognize seven grantees who are receiving seed grants that are sprouting change in the community for all, from plants and animals to pregnant mothers and at-risk youth. Igor Korsunsky steps back into history to connect and share with youth its impacts while David Silver introduces youth to some of the gentle giants of the animal kingdom.
