Over the summer & recently many changes have come about. The CCA Youths created a birdbath from terracotta pots, the PAL youths painted a large picnic table, trellis from recycled materials and have finished one of three painted garden murals. The garden continues to develop, thank you to those individuals and community organizations and businesses that have donated your time, resources & materials for this unique youth enrichment program.
