Dunbar/Spring Community Garden irrigation repair and cleanup

Dedicated volunteers who stayed much of the dayOver the Summer, with a small grant and help from Ironwood Tree Experience (and many neighborhood volunteers), a group of residents was able to fix several serious and ongoing issues plaguing the community garden.

Our initial efforts were to clean up garbage, weeds, and invasive bermuda grass. Our second effort was to fix irrigation problems. We spent a very long day digging trenches and replacing aging, leaking irrigation lines. These efforts will save water resources as well as money for the neighborhood, community garden, and the Dunbar Project.

Thank you to everyone who helped! And a special thanks to those that gave their entire Saturday (and much sweat and energy) and stuck it out throughout the day to finish off the irrigation system.
