Carrick-Overbrook is getting a community garden adjacent to the Accamando Center on Route 51! The Food City Fellows Community Garden Initiative is a program hosted by Women for a Healthy Environment, and they are working closely with local community members to create a summer work-study program to design, create, and maintain a community garden. What’s particularly special about this is that participating teens will be getting paid minimum wage to make our neighborhoods a little bit better—and some parents may luck out with delicious vegetables in the process!
This program lasts Monday to Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., from June 25 until August 6 (except July 4). If you’re interested in applying to work for this program, or know any youths who would be, contact Women for a Healthy Environment’s Michelle Naccarati-Chapkis at 412.420.2290.
