Academies @ Roxborough students and Seniors volunteered at the Philly Goat project this weekend. Students participated in trainings and received community service hours towards their service learning projects. Mrs. Ragazzino sponsored the students and went with them to Awbury Arboretum’s Agricultural Village at 6336 Ardleigh Street in Philadelphia on a Saturday for the training.
WHAT IS THE PHILLY GOAT PROJECT?
The Philly Goat Project is a unique community-based program offering grazing, animal-assisted therapy, goat yoga and community wellness.
The intention of the program is to provide these unique services while practicing responsible environmentalism, respectful and humane treatment of all creatures, while creating a platform that brings really fun agricultural experiences to the urban landscape.
