A huge thank you to the UC Berkeley students for coming out and energizing our neighborhood, to the City of Berkeley for providing the plants, dirt, students, and tools, and to the neighbors who came out and helped spruce up our little corner of South Berkeley: Tania, Jason, Francesca, Terence, Sam, Lisa, Hawa, Cecelia, Roxanne, Mary, Awilda, Zach, Molly, Clara, & Paula! (let me know if I missed you!)
We were able to pick up several bags of trash, weed whack several overgrown hell strips, prune up a bush that had become a neighborhood bathroom, plant dozens of plants, and put in lots of bulbs that will hopefully come up next spring as a reminder of how far we’ve come.
In the mean time, here’s the thank you note that the Berkeley Project students gave to us for letting them volunteer with us. What an inspirational group of young adults!
