About this Project

If you haven't checked out HAVENWomen...

They provide transitional housing for female Veterans.

We first met with them during a very snowy March day.

Pretty difficult to see the beds, but we could see that a lot of the shrubs were tired.

The back beds and porches

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.

April 6: Demo Day & Spring Clean Up

Ready to Go!

19  volunteers including our friends from University of the Sciences, Enliven Planters and two of our US Veterans were ready to go!

Cleaning out the beds

There are 4 12x 9 beds. Sounds easy? Not so much when there are established trees, ivy and did we mention Bamboo?

image58

This team is persistent.

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)

This bamboo is crazy.

It almost ate our volunteer, Caroline.

Meanwhile...

US Navy Veteran, Sonia ties the bamboo into bundles. Easier to carry. She makes it look easy.
