picked up our supplies from Keep Columbus Beautiful, including mulch, top soil, bottled water, luna bars, litter grabbers, gloves, safety vests, trash bags, etc. EDC CEO Kristen was there to pass out supplies, too. Apparently, the work sites signed up for 5,700 rewards, but they only had 5,000 rewards (i.e., free Jeni’s and Bubble Tea and 2-for-1 Chipotle) to give out. So, a lot of the community gardens returned a lot of their rewards so that there would be enough to go around. Kristen was very impressed. The work sites also get 2 fashionable t-shirts.
We do have one small problem that I hope our dear readers can help alleviate. We are out of books for our Free Little Library. Everyone should have such problems. Every day that I'm at the Garden, children and parents stop by to get books and all we have right now are gardening books. Please help!
