A small “barn-raising” will be held 4-6 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Los Alamos Cooperative Market, 95 Entrada Dr., in conjunction with a national State Farm Youth Advisory Board grant award presentation.
Youth and adult volunteers are welcome to assist with the construction and decoration of a small hoop house at the Co-op, which is a partnering satellite location for the funded community garden project.
The State Farm Youth Advisory Board awarded a $96,250 grant to the Los Alamos Juvenile Justice Advisory Board in support of an educational and outreach community garden.
The JJAB has contracted The Family YMCA to deliver the grant’s education and food-assistance objectives throughout the next year.
This is the second award by the State Farm Youth Advisory Board to the JJAB for their Los Alamos Youth Food Project. The funding has provided seed money in order to mobilize middle and high school youth in support of sustainable healthy eating.
Youth and adult volunteers can paint and decorate the hoop-house from 4-6 p.m. Oct. 23. The hoop house will be used for winter planting and spring seedling starters. State Farm representatives will also present a commemorative check to JJAB officials at 4:30 p.m.
