AMIkids Garden at NCH
The young men from the AMIkids Big Cypress program with their Program Manager Anthony Bowens spent their Saturday helping community volunteers at NCH’s SAFE garden in the interior courtyard of the cancer patient wing. The young men learn horticulture skills from the knowledgeable volunteers as they help weed, trim and plant the vegetables that have been specially selected for their cancer healing properties. The cancer patients love opening their curtains so they can watch the young men working and learning in the garden. The volunteers always say that they cannot do it without the boys and the boys all say that that it is hard work but that they enjoy working with the volunteers.
