Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer Keisha Herbert recently trained more than 30 girls in Guatemala to create vegetable gardens out of recycled car and truck tires, and held a cooking and nutrition class with the food they generated from the gardens. The project not only helped raise environmental awareness, but it also improved local families’ access to food.
