About the Program
The theme this year will be "Growing Community" as we will be playing a key role in collaborating with the areas' residents, community organizations, and businesses to work towards a common goal of building a stronger community. We will also be planting greenery and small community indoor gardens in a large central gathering space or "Town Square" at LEF in their large warehouse. This town square was build in partnership with the CCP ARW program last year and is a place for staff, volunteers, program participants, community partners, and friends of LEF to meet, interact and build community.
