WILD is HIRING!

Are you a WILD alumni or college student interested in supporting and teaching elders and youth in the community?  If so, come join the WILD team!

Our talented Intergenerational Program Coordinator, Huafeng, was accepted in the Year Up program this fall, and will be leaving WILD at the end of December 2013.  While we are sad to see him go, we are also really excited for Huafeng's new adventures, and the amazing opportunities that will open up for him as part of the Year Up cohort.

This means we are looking to fill the part-time WILD Intergenerational Program Coordinator position as soon as possible.  Our Intergenerational Program focuses on fostering relationships among our community elders and youth through various programs, including our ESL classes taught by youth, summer walking groups, and various field trips.

This is a great position for a student, or someone looking for part-time work (~20 hrs/wk).  As many of the intergenerational program activities involve interpretation, we are also looking for someone that is fluent in Chinese (Cantonese & Mandarin), can work independently, and is passionate about working with both youth and elders.

Find out how to APPLY HERE!

Congratulations to the Contestants and Crew of the 2013 WILD Iron Chef Competition!

WILD Youth Iron Chefs and Staff with Uncle Bob Santos in the Danny Woo Garden


On Saturday October 19, 2013, the Danny Woo Garden hosted the 2013 Fall Harvest Festival and as part of the celebration, WILD put on the 2013 Iron Chef Competition. For 3 weeks leading up to the Festival, WILD youth got into 3 different teams to create 3 different award-winning recipes that all had to include the secret ingredient: ASIAN PEARS.

The teams prepared Pear Dumplings, Pear Pancakes with Pear Syrup, and Pear Curry over Rice. All turned out great and tasty!

We would like to again congratulate all participants, and our winner of the first ever WILD Iron Chef Trophy: the Pear Dumpling Team

Everyone had a great time working together, feeding and interacting with the gardeners and community members, and learning about the amazing history of the Danny Woo Garden and our beloved International District / Chinatown Community.
