Education by Gardening Camp Aftermath
After camp for 2009 had ended, volunteers met, enjoyed a meal together, and provided feedback by completing a questionnaire and by participating in a brainstorm session. Feedback will be tabulated and brainstorm comments used when planning for next year's camp begin later this Fall.
On the day scheduled for feedback and a meal, Indianapolis experienced record rainfall, high wind, and flash flooding, which caused some volunteers to not be able to attend. They and other volunteers who were unable to attend due to scheduling conflicts were encouraged to complete the questionnaire and to send it back to FHC. However, on a good note, after the storm when our building that has been under renovation was inspected, it was found to be still sealed tight and dry, thanks to our exceptional construction volunteers.
The end of camp also meant saying goodbye to our wonderful Intern from the Indianapolis Peace Institute. She was an integral part of camp this year, and we were blessed to have her join us. She worked with campers, led discussions, researched information needed for our partnership with Sebeta, an orphanage in Ethiopia, and pitched-in wherever and whenever she was needed. We hope she will get the opportunity to drop in and visit sometime.
