Phoenix Garden Project Seeks Community Volunteers
In October, the Phoenix Garden Project located at the Youth Services Center in San Mateo hosted the Young Men’s Service League (YMSL), a group of about teenage sons and their mothers, for a fun and productive workday. From 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., this energetic team helped revitalize a formerly moribund garden by planting artichokes, onions, garlic and an assortment of cover crops; planted a meadow of native California bunch grass; and built three picnic tables spread throughout the garden. BHRS Youth Clinical Services Manager, Regina Moreno helped guide the volunteers throughout the day.
The Phoenix Garden Project depends on amazing groups like YMSL to move our vision forward. Be sure to stop by the garden and enjoy your lunch on one of our new picnic tables and see the incredible progress being made at this wonderful community resource.
The Phoenix Garden Project holds monthly community volunteer days, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., every third Saturday, for anyone interested in helping to develop this healing space. Please contact Toni DeMarco, or Regina Moreno for more information.
