Members of the Sycuan Tribal Council Present a $5,000 Donation to Second Chance

On Wednesday, Sycuan Casino Resort proudly presented $5,000 to Second Chance in support of their Community Garden.

The Second Chance Garden allows participants to gain hands-on experience with urban agriculture. This program combines classroom and experiential learning, with classes on cooking/nutrition, food justice, financial literacy, job readiness, and youth development workshops.

All garden produce is sold through a Community Supported Agriculture Program (CSA), restaurants and pop-up farm stands. All revenue generated from sales helps provides stipends, supplies and instruction.

Additionally, in honor of Second Chance’s 30th Anniversary, the organization will be hosting a Community Day the last Friday of the month. Join Second Chance on Friday January 27 for a fun afternoon with local vendors, fresh produce, crafts, health and family services and more.
