Dear Applicant,
As the current Garden Manager for the Wesley Community Center, I encourage 
you to apply for the position as the next manager of the Wesley Garden.
The Wesley Community Center has been serving the residents of Nuestro 
Barrio, one of the few long-established Hispanic neighborhoods remaining in 
Phoenix, since 1950.
The non-profit Center supports the community by offering services like 
child care, ESL education, after school activities, food, clothing, and now 
a community garden, to those in need.
Being the Garden Manager at Wesley offers many experiences for growth, and 
Iím not just talking about vegetables. In the past year, nearly 300 Spanish 
and English speaking students from the neighboring Hererra Elementary 
School visited the garden each week to plant, tend and harvest their own 
vegetables and flowers. Adult students of the ESL and sewing classes 
offered at Wesley also adopted rows and took home fresh, organic vegetables 
to share with their families. For most of these individuals, the Wesley 
Garden was their first gardening experience. With the garden expanding, 
there will be even more opportunities for community involvement.
If you have desert, organic gardening experience with knowledge of 
irrigation use and installation, enjoy working with both children and 
adults, are dedicated and energetic, and would like to supplement your 
income while doing something positive for your community, please contact 
Betty Mathis, the centerís Executive Director at 602-252-5609.
Being Wesley Community Centerís Garden Manager has been a truly great 
experience. I hope you will agree.
