Description

Join J-Teen Leadership's new initiative-launching event for 8th graders- J-Teen Next Gen! We will build and harvest with the Pleasantville Community Garden, celebrate Sukkot (the harvest festival) and be inspired by what teen-led service can do! Come learn about J-Teen and take part in a social action event benefitting our neighbors.

In 2013, Devin Juros, a 7th grader, thought of the idea for the Pleasantville Community Garden as a way to provide healthy and fresh produce to Westchester residents in need. According to the Food Bank, approximately 200,000 Westchester county residents are hungry or at risk of hunger- 50% are seniors and about 30% are children under the age of 18. Since the summer of 2014, Pleasantville Community Garden has donated over 21,000 pounds of fresh produce to county soup kitchens and food pantries. Can't wait to see you and your friends at this fun Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) opportunity.
