Founder of the 'We Got This' garden program, Andre Lee Ellis, will have new soil to till in his new job

We wish Andre Lee Ellis the best of success in his new role as the Director of Community Development and Outreach at the Ultimate Farm Collaborative. Andre truly epitomizes the phrase "Be The Change You Wish To See." He saw a problem of violence in his neighborhood and acted by creating the We Got This Milwaukee Community Garden which promotes healing and community unity through gardening, mentoring, and neighborhood beautification. We were honored to support We Got This since its inception and we will work closely with the community to determine the garden's future.

Andre Lee Ellis is taking on a new role with a farm collaborative on Silver Spring Drive to promote urban farming.

Today the Running Rebels celebrates the launch of their reckless driving- "Wreck-less, Live More" campaign. 🥳We see for ourselves the increase in reckless driving in Milwaukee, and the negative outcomes. Our youth collaborated on several projects to not only aware the community about the dangers of reckless driving, but to encourage change in a positive way!🙏

A recent CDC study shows just how contagious the Delta variant is. After a teacher infected with the variant worked for two days, occasionally unmasked to read aloud to kids, half those kids tested positive.
The high rate of infection from one initial case highlights just how quickly Delta can spread – especially among unvaccinated people like schoolkids, who are too young to get the vaccine.
