From a parent:
ANV is just wonderful! My kids would come home excited about their daily activities whether it was cooking or working in the community gardens (my son did not touch a veggie before ANV).
The instruction they receive will follow them thru their lives, they became aware of the nutrition they need, from cooking to cultivating.
Thank you ANV for coming to our community!
-Esperanza M. (Miguel and Maribel’s mom)!
Please consider sponsoring a child today!
And remember, “It’s YOU that put the YOUTH in ANV’s Youth Urban Farm Project!”
