HI MY NAME IS RODNEY AND MY PARTNERS IN GROWING GREEN CALL ME RODDZILLA.I HAVE BEEN HERE FOR 2 YEARS AND GROWING GREEN HAS MADE A HUGE IMPACT ON ME AND ALOT OF OTHER PEOPLE AROUND THE COMMUNITY. I HAVE STARTED WORKING FOR 3 DAYS AND THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE NEW PEOPLE IN GROWING GREEN HAS GONE WELL FOR ME.TO ME,GROWING GREEN HAS MADE IT EASY FOR ME TO TALK TO MORE THAN 2 PEOPLE,HOW TO ESTABLISH YOUR OWN BUSSINESS AND HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY AND TO CARE ABOUT YOUR GARDEN.WHEN I FIRST STARTED MY FIRST YEAR WITH GROWING GREEN, I WAS VERY SHY AND I WOULD BE NERVOUS AT CHECK-IN AND I WOULD ALSO HOLD ALOT OF THINGS IN DURING STRAIGHT TALK.BUT NOW I CAN TALK TO A GROUP OF KIDS AND EXPRESS MYSELF MORE BETTER TO OTHER YOUTH AND STAFF.I KNOW THAT MY FUTURE WILL BE OK AND I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER GROWING GREEN EVERY WHERE I GO. IT WAS NICE TALKING TO YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

Here we are at the Farm Stand - Friday Morning at the Garden, come out and buy our veggies!

Me llamo Ashley Fontanet y soy participante de el programa massachusetta ave project y les cuento e aprendido muchisimas cosas tales como los beneficios que nos ofrecen el comer comida organica. De hecho yo no se hablar mucho el ingles y no me atrevia a hablarlo pero en este programa me siento en confiansa y e aprendido muchisimo ingles. Tambien aprendi sobre la situacion de la contaminacion y lo mucho que nosotros como ciudadanos malgastamo la energia. Tambien aprendi las causas de el utilizar pestisidas en los alimentos que nosotros comemos.
Tambien hacemos actividades educativas para conosernos un poco mas.Me gusta mucho este programa me siento como en familia por que hay muchisima confianza y tranquilidad.

Hi my name is Lina Shafie and I am 16. I am in the Business Group here at Growing Green and what I do is Marketing and Sales planning. Marketing is figuring out who you can sell to, where you should sell, how you tell everyone about your company & what you want to do in the community.
Selling, well its getting your stuff out there and hopefully making a profit. Growing Green Inc. uses the vegetables from the garden in our new salsa product called Sana Salsa.
