BEETS Caretake Koshland Park and Garden

March 17th, 2015

3.14.15-BEETS-KPWkday_IMG_0408On Saturday, March 15, 2015 many of the Spring BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens) turned out to care for Koshland Park and Garden. The first part of the day the teens worked with Recreation and Park Head Gardener, Freddie Ealom, to clear an area of the park of invasive grasses.
At the start of the workday, a crowd of 20+ walking enthusiasts came through the garden and got a presentation about the park by Barbara Wenger, Executive Director of CommunityGrows.
