Welcome to Corvallis NCCC Service Members!
These nine dedicated volunteers, from nine different states, are spending a year of service with the National Civilian Community Corps.  For seven weeks they are serving in Corvallis, improving food access in Benton County.  From May 21-July 11, 2012 they will be serving at SAGE, Dunawi Creek & Avery Park Community Gardens, South Corvallis Food Bank, Stone Soup, Lincoln School Garden, and Benton County Fairgrounds.  In just the couple of weeks they've been here, already they've been a wonderful help to the various programs.  If you haven't met them yet, come on out to a Tuesday evening work party and join us in welcoming them to our community!
