Permaganic Co. is a fantastic company filled with fantastic, positive people. The work that they are doing is very, very important and I support it with all of my heart. The kids that are involved in the program might not have another opportunity quite like this one if it weren't for them. Also, they are located in the downtown area of Cincinnati - right in the heart of it! It is my hope that they'll continue their good work through the years to come to improve our planet for the sake of all.

I've experienced the results of this organization in the way that the youth respond to it. The young people who work for this nonprofit are proud of what they do, and show an expansive knowledge base of plant types, plant care, and gardening in general. The people who have stayed the longest act as mentors for the newcomers, creating an air of cooperation and healthy teamwork.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it more publicized. I would never know it existed had I not sought out garden volunteering. You could drive right past without a second glance, so maybe even a more compelling, bigger and clearer sign out front would help.

I am a member of Cincinnati Friends Meeting, a Quaker church. We decided about a year ago to actively support the work and mission of Permaganics. In fact, we called their work a "ministry" in the Quaker sense of that word: serving the needs of others in ways that promotes the development of peace and social justice. Their work with the youth of inner-city Cincinnati, in a neighborhood called Over-The-Rhine is a strong force for bringing good healthy work- not to mention good healthy food- into the lives of the children and young adults there. Luke and Angela have demonstrated over many years now the depth and seriousness of their committment to this project.

Affecting the lives of the (mostly disadvantaged) young men and women in the Over-The Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. Permaganics has been around long enough now that the workers who have been around a while are now mentoring the newcomers, which is very exciting.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

put their funding on a more stable basis. Since they became an independent 501-C this is starting to happen but it will take a while to develop.
