It was the hottest day of the year so far with temperatures reaching almost 100 degrees. But that didn’t stop our hearty group of 20 volunteers from ripping up asphalt all day — THANK YOU! The pavement was thick, heavy, and practically melting beneath our feet. The newly depaved space is now filled with compacted gravel which allow for a huge increase in stormwater infiltration. This depaving clears the way for raised beds filled with vegetables for the students to grow food and learn about urban gardening.
