AmeriCorps in Alabama building our garden beds

A few weeks ago we flat pack shipped 15 – 4′ x 8′ x 24″ garden beds all the way to Alabama for an AmeriCorps project through the YWCA. It was a LOT of wood, and the project is for a great cause. Please check out there website and feel free to send a donation their way, they are doing great things. http://www.ywcabham.org/  An excerpt from their website (video below) –

On Monday, the YWCA’s AmeriCorps members spent their Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a national day of community service. The 33 members, along with the support of volunteers, including the YWCA’s new CEO Yolanda Sullivan, worked together to enhance the beauty and vitality of the historic Woodlawn community in honor of King’s legacy of service for the sake of others. The AmeriCorps members’ service also contributed to the ongoing effort of the YWCA’s YWoodlawn Revitalization Project, which has, over the past seven years, transformed several acres of once blighted housing into an award-winning neighborhood. The sunny weather and rich soil were great signs of good things to come.
