Show MEEEEEE the MONEY!!!!!!
Goshen: Residents will be working closely with a local garden center business owner. He will donate additional gardening resources such as materials for raised beds and seedlings. He will also offer his expertise. Boys and Girls Club will also offer expertise and staff time.
In Chamberlain Neighborhood, residents anticipate a range of good results, including a heightened awareness of healthy food and environmental stewardship. Residents also expect an improvement in the appearance of their existing garden, since more people will have "ownership" of the space; and perhaps most important, relationships between neighborhood youth and adults will be strengthened.
The Center for Planning Excellence, in partnership with Old South Baton Rouge Garden Alliance will create a youth gardening program. The program will target youth between the ages of eight and twelve, and will provide them instruction on how to grow and sell their own crops. In addition to developing knowledge of horticulture, the students will learn basic construction and marketing skills.
The second STEPS Coalition team will promote the creation of quality employment opportunities along the Gulf Coast. The “Economy Jobs that Pay” initiative will specifically focus on bringing more clean energy and green collar jobs to the area. Once team members convene interest groups and other relevant stakeholders, they intend to conduct a market analysis to identify where the investment is currently being directed. The group will then reach out to local officials to work to advance their cause. STEPS expects its efforts will ultimately result in 50 workers entering into a workforce/entrepreneurial database targeted for first source hiring.
