Make a Difference Day Service Project

  1. Updates

Our AmeriCorps members continued to serve their community and make an impact by partnering with The Native Garden organization at Lake Cunningham Park in San Jose. We broke into teams pulled weeds to protect the infilatration of the native plants within the area and used wheelbarrows and pitchforks to move an eight foot mountain of mulch from one area of the park to another. After the mulch was transported, it was used to create a barrier of protection for new plants so that they could have the opportunity to thrive within the winter months. Everyone worked very well together and Arvind, our project contact and the Native Garden coordinator, had nothing but great things to say about or work ethic and the amazing work we do each day. Hats off to our AmeriCorps members for yet another successful service day.
