Thanks to incredible volunteers and teen interns, our summer program at CommunityGrows was a smashing success! We could never have served over 300 youth from thirteen organizations without you! Thanks to Adrian Gaino, Ariel Miller, Stephanie Geballe, Beth Sachnoff, Veronica Nommensen, Braegen Carroll, and Gloria Lee. Our summer youth interns, Quincey Martin and Auriana Mixon from JCYC (Japanese Community Youth Council) New Ways Workers, and Bridges programs were exceptional. We also got help with our cooking classes from Hye-Jin Yun from Lowell High School. Thank you everyone!
The volunteers worked in the Koshland Garden and the Hayward Recreation Center Garden, as well as accompanied us on field trips. They also joined us for our Seed-to-Mouth Cooking classes, every Wednesday afternoon in July.
