In one of Kansas City’s food deserts, where nearly half of the residents live under federal poverty levels, there is a forested property with potential to change the future. This summer, the team at Clement Waters is restoring a forested vacant lot to be a place where people learn “green” lifestyle choices that improve health and relieve hardship. Their focus this summer is getting the forest completely safe for public visitors, and easily maintainable by way of appropriate storage facilities. The perfect volunteer partners will enjoy technical projects, the great outdoors, and/or gardening.
