Your Gift Supports the Future for Youth Education Initiatives
Watershed Management Group believes youth can lead the way to prosperous communities and a healthy environment—and now you can help.
Since 2008, Watershed Management Group has partnered with teachers in K-12 schools to create outdoor classrooms that use water harvesting and native and edible gardens to teach math, science, ecology, health, and so much more.
As we move into 2014, we’re expanding our work with children and youth. Will you help to sustain this much-needed work by making a gift to our year-end campaign?
Your gift will support:
Partnering with K-12 teachers to create an ecology curriculum for elementary, middle, and high school students.
Collaborating with Goodwill to provide job training for youth coming out of juvenile detention through the GoodFutures program.
Creating a children’s playhouse at our new Living Lab and Learning Center, featuring mini models of kitchen and laundry greywater systems, rain tanks, compost toilets, and an interactive earthworks sand box.
Make your gift to our year-end campaign to support both our program work and capital campaign to build a solid future for youth education! Thanks for your support all year as volunteers, advocates, and social investors partnering with WMG.
P.S. Did you know WMG is writing a children’s book? With your help we can publish and distribute our book, Poo to Peaches, teaching children about site-built compost toilets, soil building, and water conservation. Make a gift to support our new youth initiatives today!
