At Key Capture Energy, being a good community steward is an important part of our corporate culture. Our monthly community volunteer efforts allow us to give back to different local programs. Last month, in Albany, we teamed up with the Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School to participate in their afterschool program, The Vegetable Project.
The Vegetable Project has been creating hands-on teaching and learning opportunities for students since 2009, using gardens and plants to create active, tactile, and experimental learning opportunities that allow kids to thrive outside of the classroom. The program believes that we as a community can go a long way towards addressing educational challenges when we harness the goodwill of community members who are determined to make a difference – and we couldn’t agree more!
Our employees were able to work in the garden with several students on a variety of activities, including starting seeds, screening compost, pH testing, and painting signs. We had a fantastic experience, and we are hoping to go back at harvest time.
