Stories from the DEG
We are proud to announce that our beloved Nancy Waidtlow, founder of the Dakota EcoGarden, has been awarded the distinguished Mr. Rodgers Good Neighbor award for her efforts in helping end homelessness in Fresno, CA.
Valley PBS presented Nancy with the award on March 20, 2021. Fred McFeely Rogers (Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood) was born on March 20, 1928, and these awards are bestowed upon select members of the Central Valley community every year on Mister Rogers’ birthday in honor of his legacy.
The Valley PBS Nominate Your Neighbor 2021 video can be viewed below. The segment featuring Nancy Waidtlow starts around the 13 minute mark:
