Como Corner and Gateway Community Gardens benefit from YMCA service

Garden openings in SE Como had the the sense of accomplishment akin to "Extreme Makeover" in the last week on April.  Both  Como Corner (see photo) and the Gateway Garden enjoyed an influx of college students working as tutors for the YMCA.  They had contacted SECIA asking to come to our community garden time as a 1 time service project.  Of course we said Yes! Ten single-visit-volunteers can take care of a task that would require 2 people to do all day.

Thanks to all the visitors who made such a positive  visible impact in the Como  neighborhood!
