Next Step Lends a Hand to Roosevelt High

Today, a handful of wonderful volunteers from Next Step Ministries helped transform the garden at Roosevelt High School Academy for Environmental and Social Policy. The initial work involved lots of weed removal. The fruit trees surrounding the garden were getting smothered by pesky grass so we had to get them outta there!

Just before lunch, we amended the garden beds with compost and some coffee grounds from Taza Coffee Shop in Echo Park.  The volunteers also pulled out some power tools and fixed a few broken boards. What wonderful volunteers, right?!

As we wrapped up the day’s work, we put in tomato seedlings for the upcoming warm weather. It was a splendid day outside, thanks to Zeena, Hanna and Beth’s wonderful crew from Next Step Ministries!
