Global Youth Service Day

Global Youth Service Day 2014

ACT Youth Ambassadors came out to help to prepare the Morgan Spring Community Gardens for the coming season as a part of 2014 Global Youth Service Day. Most of the harvest from the garden is donated in support of local food banks throughout the area!

A great story on the project was in the Bennington Banner: http://www.benningtonbanner.com/localnews/ci_25566944/garden-gets-its-season-rsquo-s-start-americorps
