On September 17th, 2019, CommunityGrows had the honor of working with some of Hall Capital staff, to work on garden maintenance and beautification projects in the Buchanan Mall Garden. These group workdays are a huge help to our staff because it can be difficult to work on large garden projects between teaching classes, curriculum building, and day-to-day work tasks.
We divided into three groups to be more productive and get more projects done. One team worked in the African American Arts and Culture Complex (AAACC) garden- they were in charge of cleaning up the garden for the new plants, pruning and deadheading the plants growing there, and cleaning up the beds and sidewalks. The second team created garden journals for the students – they folded and stapled over 100 new journals! Last but not least, team compost- they walked to Rosa Parks Elementary School to go sifted and flipped both of the compost bins. The new sifted compost was then used to plant new plants in the Buchanan Mall Garden.
At the end of the day, we walked to Rosa Parks to end the workday appreciating our team members and hard workers from Hall Capital.
Once again, thank you Hall Capital and every member of CommunityGrows that came out! Hope to everyone there again next time!
