YMCA Mel Wolf Child Development Center, Garden Boxes

The YMCA-Mel Wolf Child Development Center recently received a grant to start a garden for the children at its local daycare facility. The center was able at its local daycare facility. The center was able to purchase all the materials and obtain a garden specialist for the project, but needed assistance with building the garden boxes. That’s when the carpentry students at Charleston Job Corps stepped in, creating the new garden boxes. The Mel Wolf Child Development Center couldn’t be more pleased.
