“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.” –Rachel Carson, American Biologist
On Saturday October 23, 2010, Tehama County mentors and mentees will join the nationwide movement to do good by participating in Make a Difference Day. Our project will be to help plant the winter garden at the Tehama County Collaborative Garden. This garden supports the Juvenile Justice Center, Women Infants and Children and clients of various programs served by the Tehama County Health Services Agency. It is also supported by the Tehama County Landfill and Community Action Agency. The Garden is located on Walnut Street near the Juvenile Justice Center. Work starts at 10:00am and continues until 1:30. Lunch will be provided. Participants should dress for garden work, including close-toed shoes and sun protection.
