Her interest in community gardens is no surprise. Whatever your politics, Teresa Heinz Kerry has a long history with funding projects and research surrounding women, children, and the environment.


??the Heinz foundations are widely known for developing innovative strategies to protect the environment, improve education and the lives of young children, reduce the cost of prescription drugs, promote the arts and help women achieve financial economic security. She established the Women's Institute for a Secure Retirement in 1996 to educate women about pensions, savings, and retirement security.?


And further?

?As a member of the Advisory Board for the Earth Communications Office, she helped to pioneer an internationally acclaimed public service campaign promoting citizen environmental action in countries around the globe. Similarly, she sponsored The Environminute and The World ECO Minute, a daily radio campaign reaching citizens in more than 100 countries, and HealthWeek, a weekly PBS-produced program with a strong focus on women's health and the environment. She helped to conceptualize and launch Second Nature, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the development of an environmentally literate citizenry. She is a co-founder of the Alliance to End Childhood Lead Poisoning and serves on the Advisory Council for the Center for Children's Health and the Environment at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. ?
