DMGA Meeting -
Monday, March 25, 2019
Sabirah Islam and Eli Winterscheidt:
Join DeKalb Master Gardener Association on March 25th for a presentation by
two juniors at Tucker High School --
Sabirah Islam and Eli Winterscheidt.
You may have seen them on
the cover of Tucker's "Up Close and Personal."
Sabirah and Eli will tell us about their volunteering with Earth Tomorrow,
a chapter of the National Wildlife Federation. They are part of an environmental science club
that focuses on our local community. They focus on projects in recycling, conservation,
and being able to provide healthier and more sustainable food options for people.
Earth Tomorrow is the National Wildlife Federation’s multicultural environmental education
and leadership development program, creating opportunities for youth in underserved communities
to develop environmental literacy and life skills that will help them make valuable
contributions to the ecological health and leadership of their communities.
The program, operated out of Atlanta through the National Wildlife Federation's
South Central Regional Center, cultivates a new generation of lifetime environmental stewards
through a year-long cycle of leadership training, issues exploration, civic engagement,
career development, community outreach and education, and student-led community action
projects for urban teens.
DMGA meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.
