Hi. I am organizing a Dozen Years of Digging festival and
Poetry contest to be held next May at Winterfield Community Garden and adjacent Winterfield Elementary School to celebrate 12 years of the garden’s existence AND all the folks – especially students who have been involved with the children’s garden program .
We are working with the schools, Communities in Schools, Mecklenburg County Soil Water Conservation District and others to have a poetry contest. Select poems will be printed on yard signs to line the side walk around the school and adjacent garden.
D’Angelo was recommended to me as someone who mIGhT be willing to either work with students or possibly serve on a committee to select the poems. Sustainability is the general theme. Jose G Vazquez has already volunteered. We are meeting today to discuss with CM Library.
Would you be interested in being involved in any way.?
