Giving back was the name of the game on Monday as part of an event in honor of Martin Luther King’s Day of Service.
Roughly 20 people including VISTA volunteers, community members and United World College-USA students volunteered several hours to work on the La Milpa Community Garden.
Their work included building a wooden fence and raised garden beds, cleaning of invasive weeds, and preparing the ground for the construction of a rock wall. The event was to prepare the garden for the upcoming garden season.
