Partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension
The partnership between Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County and Cameron Community Ministries is one that blossoms every year. In 2019, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County reached out to Cameron and invited the youth from Cameron’s teen center to participate in the Seeds-to-Supper program. Eager to learn how seeds reach maturation and then use the fruit of their labor to make delicious meals, the teens were more than happy to dig in.
That same year, Blocks-in-Bloom approached Cameron to become part of a neighborhood beautification program with community neighbors. In an collaborate effort, staff and volunteers knocked on the doors of our neighbors and talked with them about preparing, planting, and maintaining their flower beds. For the first year, seven houses came together and enhanced their front yards. Each year, we hope this program becomes a annual with more neighbors coming together to help make Cameron Street the beauty that it is.
Volunteer opportunities are available at the Peace Garden
