Over the past few weeks in Arleta, we have been prepping for a Summer of Solutions where our focus will be community involvement in the city of Arleta and the surrounding cities (Pacoima, Panorama City, Van Nuys.) We have been reaching out to parents, students, and teachers at the garden where we have received support.
We are reminded that the garden would not have been possible without the help from the 10 volunteers and the 80 hours that we all have dedicated. We only hope for anyone who eyes the garden to think briefly that people in the community care and want to create a space for children to visually see the beauty, and the gifts that this earth continues to bless us with. Kids are asking questions about the garden and if they can help watering the garden. That is enough to keep the children engaged in something that can show them about how nature works.
We are an optimistic bunch and would like to extend an invitation for anyone who is interested in a position as a volunteer (program leader, there is a possibility for a paid position) or know someone who would like to participate (ages 10-17). Please feel free to email us to find more out about the schedule for our summer programs.
We do not tolerate any form of discrimination. There is no future without diversity, be open and ride the wave and together we’ll sail the oceans together.
If I don’t answer please leave your name and number.
