Summer Students: Kevin & Vanessa
We are kicking off the summer by keeping a reading journal that we will update once a week to let YOU know what’s up with our gardens! Summer students Kevin Arriola and Vanessa Dion Fletcher have joined the Maintenance team of D.F.C to help take care of the Gardens. The students will be here all summer, planting, weeding, watering and more. Vanessa first got involved with the Co-op in 2013 facilitating the Youth Wampum Project. In the fall Vanessa will be starting her first year Masters’ Program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This is Kevin’s first involvement with the Co-op but he is nonetheless excited to be a part of it! Kevin hails from the halls of Ryerson University, where he will be entering into his third year of the Politics and Governance (BA) program.
