June 19th: King-dome Builders - Jasper Gary
My passion for community driven work didn't begin until a few years ago. The green thumb that had developed in me wasn't always there. But once it was planted, it began to grow into many things. What started out as 2 strangers with an idea to have a community garden has blossomed into several different things, all community based and all with community passion. Over the years, we have included many youths in our mission to grow. Teens from educate youth and growing hope, as well as students from WSC have come out to not only show their support, but to learn and engage in the community as well. From planting simple things like tomatoes and peppers, to harvesting peaches and all the work that foes with it in between. Some of our other means are met by donations and funding from WCC and U of M. Having those associations have led to establishing other community connections which allow us to grow even further. Not all of our members come from community garden projects. When we bonded with the Ypsilanti Wolf Pack Cruisers on a bicycle ride, it took us further than our feet could. We gave bikes to our youth, which allowed them another outlet for their energy. If their bikes needed repairs, we got it done! We are blessed to be of service. The adults also enjoy the stress relief of yoga with Brotha Noah in the park. When we're all together, it's like family, and we all enjoy the events such as movie night, bowling, and roller skating. The teachers of our group also provide knowledge to both youth and adults in the matter of health and survival with programs such as STOP THE BLEED and health economics. With all this combined we, the King-Dome Builders, are trying to build mind, body, and soul.
