HAPPY HOUR Benefit for the Washington Youth Garden

emPower magazine, in partnership with Washington Gardener Magazine is hosting an emPower HAPPY HOUR at Tabaq Bistro. Each month, emPower holds a Happy Hour event in support of a different non-profit organization in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.

The July Non-Profit emPower HAPPY HOUR Recipient:
Washington Youth Garden

The Washington Youth Garden's Mission: Using the garden cycle as a tool, the mission of the Washington Youth Garden at the U.S. National Arboretum (WYG) is to inspire children and families to engage in self-discovery, explore relationships with food and the natural world, and contribute to the health and well-being of their communities. The primary goals of our programs are to: a) educate youth and families about the relationship between food, its origins, nutrition, and health; b) connect children (and adults) to the natural world as a place of wonder, exploration and resource for their personal growth; c) develop interpersonal skills, awareness of civic responsibility, and land stewardship; and d) expand interest and public awareness of urban gardening and gardening with children.

• By drinking (10 percent of the beverage proceeds will go to the non-profit)
