Every year, community members around the country work together to serve their communities on MLK Day. As an AmeriCorps member, I have had the privilege of being involved in some really cool service projects. This year was not an exception!
Last Monday, I joined other AmeriCorps members, students, community volunteers, and residents at Casa de Belen, a local teen shelter, to work on preparing their garden spaces for the Spring. We pulled thousands of weeds, started planting seeds for indoors, and had a lot of fun.
Now that the soil is ready, and with a donation of around 900 seed packets from Phoenix School, I think Casa is just about ready to have many fresh fruits and veggies this Spring.
