Signing up for the military isn't like taking a job or registering for a camp or school. It is a serious decision that has lifelong consequences. Recruiters are quick to emphasize the good points about being in the military, but there are many downsides. What recruiters say about life in the military at best omits many facts. At worst, recruiters tell out and out lies to sign up recruits.

 

Friends Peace Garden

The Friends Peace Garden crew

Working in partnership with the students of Central High School in Los Angeles, the American Friends Service Committee is creating an edible and sustainable school community garden. 

The goal of the Friends Peace Garden is help Central High School become a community leader in green innovation and a pioneer in urban farming by 2012.  By using current science, technology and conservation methods, the students will implement ideas to green their campus by creating organic solutions that are environmentally friendly and efficient.
