They provide transitional housing for female Veterans.
Pretty difficult to see the beds, but we could see that a lot of the shrubs were tired.
Back up to an alley and shared space. There is a lot of Bamboo that needs to be taken out. We also met Jason Romero from PGW. He's awesome. Thank you for your service, Jason.
19 volunteers including our friends from University of the Sciences, Enliven Planters and two of our US Veterans were ready to go!
There are 4 12x 9 beds. Sounds easy? Not so much when there are established trees, ivy and did we mention Bamboo?
They worked until they got the bamboo at least to a flattened state. Now we just need someone to loan us something to dig it out. (Yes, we're serious)
It almost ate our volunteer, Caroline.
US Navy Veteran, Sonia ties the bamboo into bundles. Easier to carry. She makes it look easy.
A mighty team can accomplish many things.
Your support and contributions will enable us to help US Veterans and their families in need of finding peace, right in their own homes and communities
Have offered to provide the plants for this project. That is HUGE! We can't thank them enough.
