August 2014 H 121 Future Directions Clarence says he's been inter- ested in architecture and de- sign since junior high school. When he was younger he did artwork at the Corner Store with Kris Swanson, participat- ing in her annual art shows. He plans to take his GED test this year to get his high school di- ploma and position himself for attending college. Ruben Da- vis, another Green Team mem- ber, has always liked to draw and might be interested in the same thing. The two grew up together. Other team members, like Gary Sams and Lawrence Doz- ier are interested in full time landscape maintenance jobs. The workforce training they have done at Potomac Gardens for the past three years will be a big help to them when apply- ing for positions. A local univer- sity has offered to host interested team members at the landscape architecture and landscape management departments this fall so they can see what students and teachers work on together. Meanwhile, Little Lights Ministries hopes to expand op- portunities for the Clean Green Team by finding additional landscape maintenance clients. The group has a van and driv- er, tools, energy, and available time in their schedule. Con- tact Little Lights Ministries to discuss your landscape mainte- nance project. Cheryl Corson, RLA, ASLA, is a licensed landscape architect practicing on Capitol Hill and beyond. She thanks the Clean Green Team and Little Lights staff for showing her their community and their wonderful work. u AWARDED BEST WASHINGTON, DC CONTRACTOR OF 2012 BY ANGIE'S LIST FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED • "50 YEARS EXPERIENCE" • Flat Roof Specialists • Modified Bitumen • Skylights • Shingles • Slate • Chimney Repairs • Roof Coatings • Gutters & Downspouts • Preventive Maintenance • Metal Roofs 10 % OFF WITH THIS AD 202.425.1614 WWW.GANDGHOMEIMPROVEMENTS.NET Licensed & Insured | All Work Managed & Inspected by Owners G G ROOFING Keith Roofing EXPERT WORKMANSHIP AT REASONABLE PRICES!
