During the Summer of 2018, Rocky Mountain Youth Corp and New Mexico School for the Deaf partnered to create…
the ASL Conservation Crew
During their time in the park, the ASL crew repaired the Community Garden fence, maintained the community compost, the acequia and their work culminated
in a community picnic in the park. The crew created the menu, bought and prepared the food, and even harvested fresh mint from the garden to add to the lemonade. The crew led a tour of their Summer work in the Railyard Park, while teaching ASL to the public.
