Finding Trash And Treasure While Volunteering

April 13, 2013
By Katie Finch (family@post-journal.com) , The Post-Journal

It was raining on and off all day, typical of a spring day in April. But despite the rain there were over a dozen people pulling invasive garlic mustard in the arboretum. A short walk away a small group of people found trash and treasure as they excavated an old farm dump. In the garden, plants were getting removed and separated. A group, varying in age from 10 to 50 planted native shrubs. Along the road, poncho clad people, in their orange vests were clearing out trash from the roadside. And inside and around the building folks were scrubbing, organizing and dusting. Did I mention that it was raining?
