Your support grows youth leadership.

This is Odalis when she was a CSG Garden Aide at Buford Middle School. Her photo story shares how being in the garden makes her feel peaceful. CSG fosters important leadership opportunities for Charlottesville youth through the Garden Aides at Buford Middle School, Youth Corp Summer Internship Program, and Garden to Table Classes at Charlottesville High School. Your support makes this possible. Give today to keep these programs — and our gardens — growing!
