Keller Williams Helps Create Learning Environments
Keller Williams Realty, in partnership with the N.C. State University College of Design’s Natural Learning Initiative and Wake County Smart Start, deployed 80 volunteers to eight child care centers across the county as part of its RED Day of Service May 14.
The teams supported a program called “Preventing Obesity by Design” that transforms playgrounds into outdoor learning environments to encourage physical activity and healthy nutrition through edible gardens. The volunteers created gardens, developed dramatic play areas and planted trees to provide incentives for children to be outdoors and reduce obesity rates. Learn more at wakesmartstart.org.
