Thank you to the Wayne County Community Youth Foundation for funding our garden and to Baker Hughes for donating pallets. With their support we were able to purchase paint, soil, seeds and set up 12 pallets altogether to use for our colorful vertical gardens throughout the center’s playground. With our new vertical gardens we are able to provide the kids with an amazing learning experience as they watch their very own crops grow this summer.
We would also like to thank the Akron Zoo Mobile for coming out to the center and sharing some very special creatures with the children. On two separate occasions we were able to learn about and see a chinchilla, snake, owl, armadillo, bearded dragon and mallard ducks. The children had a blast listening to the presenters and interacting with their animal guests.
So again, we would just like to send out a special THANK YOU to all of our supporters and businesses that work together with us to provide unique opportunities for the children enrolled in our program.
