Hi my name is Cory Williams and i and 17 and currently working for Growing Green. When i first started working here i thought i was gonna be working in a garden, basically playing in dirt all day. the sun was gonna be blazing on us and we were gonna be bored with this job. So far I have met some great people like Zowie. Zowie is my core group leader and is my greatest influence in being involved. I am usually involved but I am kinda seeing myself as being a leader. this is one of the best jobs i ever had. i have worked at a Bar dish washing and it was horrible. I wash enough dishes at home to try and wash dishes as a job. So far i really like this job and would like to continue working for Growing Green. Through this job i have found a great family and wonderful friends.
Hey friends it's Ashley giving a shot out to growing green youth. This summer each group had to teach a weeks worth of lessons on a specific topic and we got the topic of environmental stewardship, sustainability, and the green economy. We are teaching our lessons through a movie ( thestoryofstuff.org ) , games and team based activities. We are having a personal challenge with recycling all the youth are to bring in their recyclable items and they will be weighed, and the person with the most stuff in weight will win a prize. we are also having an recycling egg hunt and even numbers dodge ball. So see you if i survive the week and the dodge ball.
