All of this helps CASTINGS and Zina Linnik ensure that the gardens are ready by May 20th. On this day, Desmond Tutu, who fought the atrocities of apartheid, will be joining McCarver Elementary Students for the Play in Peace Walk that will officially open the Zina Linnik Park.
Lunch will be provided to volunteers. These gardens will help create healthier food options, a sense of community, and the school’s garden is being incorporated into their academic curriculum.
