Raised Garden Beds for YWCA Workin’ Worms!

Saturday, April 27th was a busy day for YWCA! Thanks to the McLean County Cares 2013 Project, YWCA now has raised garden beds that will benefit the Workin’ Worms program this spring! Workin’ Worms is a garden based learning program that promotes an instructional strategy using the garden as a teaching tool. This program encompasses programs, activities and projects in which the garden is the foundation for integrated learning through active, engaging, real-world experiences that have personal meaning for children.

Kudos to YWCA’s Interim RSVP Director, Colleen Steinberg and YWCA Administrative Intern, Emily Koller on a job well done. Additionally, our wonderful Child Care Teacher Ms. Dayani and RSVP volunteer Chuck Gardner were instrumental in building the raised garden bed!

 YWCA would like to thank the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation for their gracious grant! We couldn’t have completed our garden without them!

    reading and posting comments. But so what, it was
    still worth it!
