August’s Team Member of the Month is the Green Team.
In partnership with the Winnipeg School Division, the Green Team, led by Dana Hawrysh, gives an opportunity to high school students to practice valuable workplace social skills and get firsthand experience in our garden program—planting, maintaining and harvesting their own crops and plants.
“In effect, it’s very similar to a sports team,” said Hawrysh. “We have to work collaboratively and communicate effectively, but there’s also a very physical element to being out in the heat all summer long.”
Thanks to the Green Team for all their hard work this summer!
