Hi everyone, I just started volunteering with a really great group of kids and we need a few more volunteers so I thought that I would pass this info on.
The Dandelion project works with at risk youth ages 6-18 who have come from dysfunctional families. On Wednesdays we work with the kids in an organic garden close to 92nd and Sheridan from 6:00-8:00. The kids each have their own plot of land to grow veggies, flowers and some fruits. The commitment would be now through September but volunteers aren't expected to make every single Wednesday throughout the summer. We are still searching for a few more volunteers, it you would like to learn more please see the attachment. The attachment has the directors contact info on it, her name is Carol La Rocque. You can also feel free to contact me at [address removed]
