Program needs car for little gardeners
Nonprofit in West Oakland still without vehicle after van fire
Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - OAKLAND -- A children's gardening program is seeking donations to buy a reliable vehicle after its van caught fire earlier this month.
The Oakland Butterfly Urban Gardens program, a West Oakland nonprofit that educates kids about nutrition and gardening, hopes to buy another van to transport students. The program created four community gardens in West Oakland and plans to open more in the area.
The program's van, which was its main source of transportation, caught fire after its electrical wires started smoking under the dashboard, said Nana Robinson, OBUGS youth coordinator. The van was used to take kids home and on field trips.
The program also holds a six-week summer camp to teach kids how to recycle, garden and cook vegetables.
For more information on donations, contact OBUGS at 676-7072. The office is at 1724 Mandela Parkway, Suite 5, Oakland, CA 94608.
