Fall 2012 BEETS Cohort Begins

On September 13, 2012 a new group of teen joined the BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens). During an orientation at the Hayes Valley Youth Center everyone put their thought down about the guiding principles of the BEETS, including respect, kindness, safety, responsibility and fun! After committing to these by signing their names on each sheet, the group took off for Koshland Park and Garden where they were introduced to best garden practices, toured the garden, and partook in a few fun ice-breakers.
