Dobson Family Farms and Kovach, Inc. is helping teen leaders from ICAN learn to grow food this summer as part of a leadership and work ethic program. The teens, ages 13-18, have spent weeks growing watermelons. This week, they donated 315 pounds of watermelons to Chandler Christian Community Center to be given to families in need and food will continue to be donated while it's available. ICAN is an afterschool program for at-risk youth in downtown Chandler. "Each of the kids oversaw a row (at the five-acre farm)," explained ICAN teen program manager Kyle Kiger. "They've taken ownership of their work." Information: (480) 821-4207.
