"I’m so glad the Houston YMCA volunteers were able to give you all a hand at the garden this afternoon, since they finished their construction work a day early. They all had fun doing it too.  I love when we can all help each other! Good stuff!  These kids were SUPER workers!  30 bags of weeds in 1 hour.  Awesome."
- Joyce Johnson, Volunteer Coordinator
