On Friday, September 30th, Gateway High School joined CommunityGrows staff Melissa Tang and BEETS intern Ivan Gladamez in Koshland Garden for a volunteer Day of Service. These 15 youth and their Humanities Teacher, Amanda LaBerge, did a lot of weeding, mulching, composting and getting the garden ready for the fall. Great job everyone and thank you so much for making the garden shine!
We love the rain! Even when there’s a workday in Koshland Park and Garden. On Saturday, May 7th eighteen volunteers from the Yale Alumni group came out to help us spruce up the park and garden. Besides helping Freddie Ealom, our Recreation and Park Garden in the upper park, everyone took on the tasks of composting, weeding, moving mulch with wheelbarrows,removing debris,picking up trash, weeding strawberries, and pruning the Mock Orange and Black Knight Butterfly Bushes that grace the entrances to the garden. Everyone was in a jovial mood, and after an hour and a half, we got done early, just before the rain really started to come down. Thank you Yale Alumni for making the day a great success!
