Work Day at Lexington with Next Step Ministries

We had a very productive Wednesday at Lexington! Volunteers from Colorado and Vancouver, visiting Los Angeles with Next Step Ministries, came down and got some serious work done beautifying this garden. They tackled weeds in the raised beds and pathways, spread some new mulch along the entire garden space, labeled crops, and planted some new seedlings! The garden looked beautiful by the end of the day. We can’t thank Next Step enough for always bringing enthusiastic, hardworking volunteers!
