"Green Jean" Ponzi Spotlight on We Are OneSTL

This month, our We Are OneSTL feature is Jean Ponzi. If you are involved in sustainability in St. Louis, you likely have heard of or met Green Jean!   

Jean grew up in Wisconsin and  has a love for and connection with the natural world, which continues to inspire her work. She has dedicated 30+ years to living and teaching sustainability skills and lessons. Jean’s passion and energy emanates from every presentation and relationship she builds and nurtures within the community.   

In the coming days, we will be sharing posts on our Instagram and Facebook about Green Jean Ponzi. Here is a sneak peak.   “...My roots as “Green Jean” Ponzi are absolutely sunk in the soil of the Missouri Botanical Garden. I am deeply grateful to the garden for cultivating the interest and skills that have become my life’s work.”
