The award also highlights his involvement with Greenrock, both in the instrumental role he played with the Healthy Harvest programme, and his continuing work with Eco-Schools. 

As the Eco-Schools programme grows, schools are continuing to see the benefit of gardens and adding green spaces to the campus. Omari is an extremely valuable resource to our young people and is constantly called upon for advice and guidance as well as facilitating activities with the eco clubs and contributing to a few lessons. There are several pathways his knowledge and experience can contribute to, not just in planting. He brings an understanding of waste management, water conservation, and the human connection to the natural world.

Omari's genuine passion about what he teaches shines through and the students thrive of his energy, as he does from theirs. Some start the programme at quite a distance from the "dirt," and after a few weeks with Omari they have their hands in the soil and are keen to show their friends and family what they have contributed to growing. He is inspiring the next generation to feed themselves.
