Snoop Dogg is connecting with Jamaica. The music star has announced a partnership with Reed's Ginger Brew to aid the Mind Gardens Project, his latest non-profit initiative to create sustainable, organic community gardens. The gardens will provide fresh fruits and vegetables to children in Jamaica.


"When I went to Jamaica, we took time to visit these communities in Kingston, and I was deeply affected by the poverty and lack of good food available to the children," revealed Snoop in a written statement. "No child should go hungry. After all the inspiration Jamaica had provided me, I felt compelled to create a program to give back to the community."


The project has already begun work in Kingston affecting two major communities, Trench Town and Tivoli Gardens. To find out more about the initiative, visit MindGardens.org or Causes.com/MindGardens.
