“The Youth Congress is going to be going around the neighborhood planting seeds,” Eddie Jackson, the leader for the Youth Congress, told The Wave. Jackson’s company E.A.J. Entertainment and Promotions provided the flowers that were planted in front of the building’s mural.
De Shawn Mason (the program director for the Boys and Girls Club) joined Vanessa Vaz (Youth Congress president and Beach Channel High School senior) and Jackson for the planting session. Anyone interested in having their garden worked on free of charge by the Youth Congress can call Sanders’ office at 718 471-7014.
