vista 50

The beginning of 2016 brought another new AmeriCorps VISTA member to Camp Fletcher. Marion Brown will be serving as the Education Coordinator VISTA at camp, overseeing the development of garden lesson plans and field trip curriculum. We are hoping to have garden field trips available to schools in 2016, and Marion will play a key part of insuring that our programs are relevant, engaging and educational for all students. We know she’s going to do a great job, and we can’t wait for you to learn more about her!
