Our Green Toolshed project began in August 2009. Several participants learned about green construction design, basic construction skills starting from the ground up, tools and safety. They also learned how to install and hook up a solar-powered panel to a battery within the shed that produces electricity needed for projects and clean up that takes place outside the shed. Participants built several relationships with each other based on trust and teamwork as it was needed to complete a project on such a magnitude as this. All skills were taught by local licensed contractors. content
Our Jewelry Design and Entrepreneurial program is designed to teach participants about sustainable jewelry and ways to market their finished designs. The program allows students to make their own jewelry.
People Who Care students constructed therapeutic garden boxes in a lot adjacent to the Hume Center facility. The students learned to do everything from digging and implementing plans for effective drainage to safely operating a bobcat. They also continue to learn reliability tending to the gardens that bloom in these boxes today.
