Thanks for a great work day JHU students!!!

Our goal of taming a vacant lot and transforming it into a productive farm took a major step forward with the help of student volunteers from Johns Hopkins University yesterday.  They lent us their energy and muscle as part of their school’s president’s service day. A great idea, and one I hope the school makes a tradition. The students helped us clear sod and dig up weeds as well as lay new raised beds. All the neighborhood residents were impressed and really enjoyed getting to know the students, as well as the chance to show off the revitalization efforts in our hood.
