As the year comes to a close, we want to express our sincere thanks for all the support we've received from you, our volunteers and CSA members. In the coming year we look forward to continuing- and hopefully expanding- our community programming. But we need your help!
Our Youth Program offers neighborhood children attending local elementary and middle schools a unique experience in the arts, poetry, creative movement and health and nutrition. Ninety-five percent of our students are from low-income households and attend at no charge. We pride ourselves on providing a quality enrichment program to families that need it most.
This coming year we’re excited to continue our students’ growing connection with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). With the support of our CSA volunteers, students will continue to receive weekly hands-on workshops in healthy food preparation and juicing using our local produce and learn about sustainable agriculture through trips to the farm. And right here in the neighborhood our students are learning about community gardening, working at the Fifth Street Farm roof-top garden at Earth School and composting food scraps at El Jardin del Paradiso garden by P.S. 15.
We look forward to another great year of programming and our twenty-first of Community Supported Agriculture with Hepworth Farm and participating members, schools and community organizations!
Your tax deductible contribution to support our community programs is deeply appreciated.
Warmest wishes during this winter season.
Keep up on what's happening around the community center!
