The Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) Young Lawyers Section (YLS) teamed up with attorneys from the St. Joseph County Bar Association for a community service project on Saturday, March 29, at Green Bridge Growers, a not-for-profit organization that uses innovative methods to grow sustainable, fresh produce year-round. Their venture is also grounded in a strong social mission - to create jobs that harness the amazing skills of young adults with autism.
YLS Chair Anthony M. Rose, a South Bend attorney, coordinated the day of service, providing attorneys the opportunity to give back to the local community. At the Green Bridge Growers’ aquaponics farm, attorney volunteers prepared a summer grow bed, seeded 1,000+ plants and made food items to sell to local restaurants.
