Community! Youth Concepts is looking to engage youth in community gardening this summer. With two plots in the Franklin Community Garden, CYC is inviting all young people interested in learning more about gardening and giving back to our community to join them.
There will be opportunities for youth to plan and plant the garden. There will also be opportunities to keep it looking beautiful! The most important piece of this summer project, however, is how the produce will be used. Everything that grows will be donated to Des Moines Area Religious Council’s food pantry, Move the Food (DMARC).
Not only is this an opportunity to be outside and learn this summer, this is an opportunity to learn more about how to give back.
Families and community members are also invited to join CYC in this effort! If you have any questions or are interested in giving your time, please get in touch with Michelle Raymer at (515) 242-4292 or Michelle@cyconcepts.org.
