From Youth In Charge's Design Coordinator, Kai Foreman: “Right now we area involved in planning the start of a co-op greenhouse business at Plumley Village. We also are making a YIC commercial to educate about lead poisoning, and beginning to attend Diggers meetings. Also, because of our collaboration with UMass Memorial, we do outreach on health issues like asthma, weight, diabetes and the like.”
