Another Awesome Project with RX Lumber
Charlie Vinz, Ken Camden, and Dawn Marie Galtieri used RX lumber for their community project called DESIGN BUILD GROW EAT!
Design Build Grow Eat is a jobs training program for teenagers. Participants, under the instruction of design professionals and seasoned educators are designing, building and developing a sustainability plan for an outdoor classroom/community garden at Monroe Elementary School. Voice of the City, a Logan Square community arts organization, is implementing the program in partnership with Logan Square Neighborhood Association (LSNA), CPS and After School Matters (ASM). The program will serve as a pilot for the Growing School Gardens (GSG) initiative of CPS. The goal of the GSG initiative is that every CPS school has a garden that functions as an outdoor classroom and enhances instruction through activity based learning.
