We are looking for experienced gardening enthusiasts to help us start the Microgreen Project for the Autisitic, Down Syndrome children with the help of Seniors in Fall 2024. The class will start when we have at least 7 children/adults to participate + at least one experienced microgreens volunteer to teach. We encourage adults to join to oversee and manage the growth of these nutritious greens.

The venue will be a day adult center near Herndon, VA where they can actively participate in this new venture. Upon successful launch, we would like to grow in a couple of other local communities. We hope to be flexible to meet your schedule including participating on the weekends.

Autistic, down-syndrome Kids and Teens: If you would like to participate in this project to learn and develop your skills, please contact us at info@internationalseva.org
