Alive In You: Helping to Create Our 'Compost Garden'

Alive In You youth mission group Valley Ranch Baptist Church Dallas TX 6.20.2012

We are forever grateful to the helping hands of endless volunteers who continue to come to the Lower 9th Ward to make a difference in our community. 

Recently, I had the pleasure to work with "Alive In You" youth mission group from Valley Ranch Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas.  For 2 days, these busy bees worked in the hot sun for hours helping my co-worker Charles Reddick and myself cut, clean, beautify, and add layers to our composting lots, and enhance our rain catchment system.  Along with Veteran Volunteer Steven Gonzales, who found lost treasure, they transformed our space and lifted our spirits. 

Thanks so much for helping us continue to move forward!
