We were asked by the Hume Center to help them build therapeutic garden boxes on an adjacent lot at their facility in Pittsburg, CA. Our Site Coordinator and four students were tasked with clearing and leveling the lot to prepare it for construction on the garden boxes.
In mid-July 2015 construction was started and finished in August. Our students learned a variety of construction skills, team building and trust as they worked together with heavy machinery and power tools. One of the most exciting parts of the construction project, was renting a Bobcat which quickened the pace and allowed each student to train on and use it.
Check out of Completed Project page for more pictures.
Come back soon for Part 2 with photos of the garden boxes.

We wanted to let you know that PWC has an incredible opportunity to relocate to a bigger facility. What does this mean to you? If your child/children need to complete their community service hours, would like or need counseling services or obtain training with an emphasis in green jobs, then we can help! In addition, we are helping the youth within your community to stay out of trouble, provide a safe environment and create opportunities for growth.
We will be holding fundraisers and raffles in 2015 to work toward and achieve our goals.
Dates will be announced shortly. Stay tuned!
