New video created by Roots & Wings Youth Leaders
We’re pleased to announce a new video, created by the Youth Leaders of Angelic Organics Learning Center’s Roots & Wings program in Rockford. This summer, the youth leaders applied for and received a grant of $2,000 from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, which allowed them to develop and launch a new free CSA program for low-income seniors in their neighborhood. The youth grew more than 600 pounds of produce this summer under drought conditions, which translates into 3,000 servings of vegetables! This video tells their story.
