Hello, again. It’s my Lashon, GENYOUth and Fuel to Play Ambassador. Today we worked on the garden. But today is no ordinary day. Today is Saturday, October 19, 2013. We watered and planted for next year. We are maintaining our garden. I thought it would be hard work, but it is actually kind of relaxing. And we didn’t just work on the garden. Ms. Wong was thinking all the left over pallets shouldn’t go to waste. So we did something about them. We turned them into benches. Ms. Wong got New York Cares in. They are a N.Y. based non-profit that gets volunteers to help with school projects. The New York Cares volunteers cut and screwed the pallets so they’re benches for our garden. We recycled what would normally be thrown in the trash. So this GENYOUth project is helping me show others how to connect the dots. We plant for healthy food and a better lifestyle and the same pallets we used for the garden, we use to make furniture. Ms. Wong calls it substainable living. So I’m helping implement healthy living and substainable living. Now my next step is getting my council to get the classrooms active for 60 minutes a day. Till next time everyone!!!photo-1 photo-2 photo
