Jake Gyllenhaal: Gardening with Students!

Jake Gyllenhaal: Gardening with Students!

Jake Gyllenhaal teams up with a group of students to help plant a garden in this video from the Today show on Tuesday (August 23).

“I grew up around gardens and growing my own food,” the 30-year-old actor said. “Growing up, more than anything, I got to know my mother and father and my sister – and they got to know me – at the dinner table.”

Back in December, Jake was named an ambassador for the Chez Panisse Foundation’s Edible Schoolyard program, which teaches students about growing and cooking their own healthy food.

    This was really sweet! A very good cause. Too bad they can’t do something to educate the parents and get them involved too. I think parents know fast food all the time isn’t the best way to eat, but it is easy and convenient so they do it just to get it out of the way.

    Wonder who is going to land Jake next. Will be interesting to see. He’s been dumped by two blondes in high profile longterm relationships. Will he go brunette and outside Hollywood, or continue with the same previous pattern? Hopefully he’ll be coralled soon; shame for that to go to waste without being appreciated!

    Awww! this is adorable. What a nice project. Jake is a sweetheart.
    #4, Joyce, I have no idea what you’re talking about. He wasn’t “dumped by two blondes.” In all three cases, including Kirsten Dunst, he walked away. Who ever he ends up with will be one lucky girl!

    #4, “dumped by two blondes” ???? Wrong! He walked away all THREE times. And we have no idea who he is dating because he is not an attentionseeker who broadcasts his personal life. It’s usually the person he’s dating that tries to get attention from it.

    He -is- dating another blonde . . but she’s not in the public eye like the previous women. No doubt, he has his choice from very many willing and able women.

    Jake is currently single, he is focusing on charity work and enviromental stuff like this one, plus he has few films he’s been doing…I hope Jake will get a nice girl because he deserves it, but right now Jake seems pretty happy with his life so let’s just not raise the question. See, no matter how good a celebrity is doing, but all people care about who is he/she dating…it’s very sad.

    I wish more celebrities had the values Jake does. He sure is a sweet man. And a great actor. That’s is what really matters. If/who he is dating makes no difference… but this kind of social work does!
    Congratulations for him!
