Volunteers Support Westside Community

On May 19, employees from BDO Grand Rapids joined Dwelling Place Community Gardner, Nicole and Bridge Street Place residents to clean up gardens and prepare for updated plants and landscaping. Participants voluntarily acknowledged their inexperience with landscaping and gardening, but they jumped in head-first making fast work of removing old plants, pruning roses and weeding large garden areas. Upon greeting the volunteers, a Bridge Street resident shared her gratitude with the group declaring "I can't tell you how much it means to us that you are helping us out. We love being able to have the garden program, but us alone can't accomplish all this clean-up work by ourselves. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"
