SACG Celebrates Earth Day by Picking Up Litter and Dodging Rain Drops

This morning, a hardy band of volunteers from the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden dodged rain drops and picked up at least 20 garbage bags of litter from Stoddart Avenue before having to call it a day in the face of inclement weather. We had help from SACG Gardeners Jeff (who picked up the supplies from Keep Columbus Beautiful), Barb (Franklin Park Neighborhood Block Watch Co-Chair), Mari (not pictured), Dave, Treva, Charlie (who tilled our garden for us yesterday), me and Tom . We also had help from neighbor, Dante. We would have gotten more done if an intense thunder cell hadn’t trapped us a mere 90 seconds after this picture was taken.

When it stopped raining, we disposed of the garbage bags and helped ourselves to seeds, brownies and mango juice.

When the ground dries out a bit, I’ll mark the plots and grab some help to fill our neighbor plot.
