Monday we participated for the first time in Esperanza Academy's Annual Shadow Day. The goal of the day is to expose the young women at the school to the varied careers of women in the area. There are presentations in the morning and then after lunch 7th grade girls visit workplaces. Karen and I made two presentations and then two students came to the office. Our presentation was a description non-profits and how they work and then more specifically what Groundwork Lawrence does in the community; then we engaged in a mock design charrette of Cronin Park.
Hello there and thanks for checking out our blog. We hope to use it let folks like you become even more connected to us here at Groundwork Lawrence. We'll be updating somewhat frequently with what is going on in the office, Lawrence and most importantly with our projects and programs. This spring we'll be talking about our tree planting program, park construction, Earth Day activities and what our Green Team is up to. As we enter the growing season of summer we hope to let you know what is happening in the community gardens and what kind of produce we're seeing from Farmer Dave.
Stay tuned... we'll have something interesting to say in this place in just a few days! Come on back!!
