Lucky for us, our monthly volunteer day and the citywide Brightside Community Cleanup Day coincided this year. We did less work in the garden than past volunteer days and instead focused our attention to the aesthetics of the Americana campus outside the garden fence. We picked up trash, weeded flower beds, and mulched flower beds. (Thanks to Limbwalkers Tree Service for the mulch)
We greatly appreciate our volunteers:
Americana Community Gardeners joined us as well to clean up their gardens and sow cover crop. Ah Pyu came by, The Adhikari family came by, Annie Kac came by, and so did the Dhakal family. They received help from volunteers Rachel Ellis and Sanon Taylor, both of which received some of the fine harvest for their help.
We usually hold our volunteer day on the 4th Saturday of every month, but we’ll be holding our next volunteer day the 3rd Saturday of November, the 17th, so as to not interfere with anybody’s Thanksgiving weekend.
