Symon Hajjar

Symon Hajjar joined Global Garden in the summer of 2010 to launch the middle school program in conjunction with Union Public Schools and Asbury United Methodist Church. After over 10 years of working with kids both inside and outside the classroom, Symon was looking for a place where kids were listened to and given the space to make their dreams happen. As the Middle School Educator Symon is seeing first hand how the philosophy and practices of Global Gardens are making a tangible difference during the formative middle school years of students' lives. As an extension of the middle school program, Symon also facilitates the community garden at Asbury corner. When he’s not at the garden house, Symon is working on his latest music album or competing in a triathlon.
