  • Description

    My name is Pizzo. I have recently served an Americorps term in San Jose, California. During this term I served with a non profit organization called Our City Forest (OCF). During my time at OCF I learned a great deal about gardening, planting trees and caring for shrubs/plants/trees. I was on a team that did lawn conversions through a process called sheet mulching, converting the lawn to a drought tolerant and native California landscape. We also had our own garden at a local farm plot in which we took care of our own native garden. With my service at OCF over in August 2018, I want to take some time to myself in order to travel and learn more about farming and gardening along with how different parts of the world are working towards being sustainable.

    During my time since OCF, I have worked in a middle school as a paraeducator (working with students on the autism spectrum or students who just need some extra support in school/class). I have also worked many summer camps in which I have worked with kids ranging from ages 10-18.
