"Winter should not be considered as only negation and destruction. It is a secret and inward working of powers, which in spring will burst into visible activity."
--Henry James Slack
SEE WHO GOT INVOLVED IN DCUG's MLK JR. SERVICE DAY
Upon the arrival of almost 100 friendly volunteers from DC, Virginia, and Maryland(!) at our Fort Dupont Ice Arena Farm, located in Ward 7, we spent a day off as a day ON. Helping to literally move our mission forward, our volunteers moved loads of gravel and leaves, laid a path of gravel, moved & organized our tools, cleaned our beds, packaged worm castings, and moved and built shelves.
We are incredibly touched by the support generated by wonderful individuals and families.
DCUG can't thank our incredible volunteers enough!
