Description

The gardening project at Miller Education Center (MEC) east is a new program created by Pacific University’s School of Occupational Therapy and MEC East to address the need for low-income and at-risk youth populations to develop life skills and job skills that will enable them to lead meaningful and productive lives. The project addresses a national and local need to develop programs that educate and empower homeless, unemployed, and disadvantaged populations through active community engagement, education, and development of local and sustainable food systems.
