On April 1st, First Pres had 15 projects all over the city for 1st Serve! Over 150 volunteers served, and many of them were on projects at Cook Literacy Model School! This year, Tom Sparling led the garden project alongside lots of participants from First Pres as well as students and faculty from Cook. The garden project accomplished the following:

– A greenhouse made with recycled bottles that the students saved and attached to the walls.

– garden dirt

– two planting tables

– pebbles for the greenhouse floor

– giant garden entry sign

– a chalkboard sign for classroom “to do” lists

– forty garden/plant signs

Check out the pictures to see the work that was done! Thanks to Tom and the gardening crew!
