Young Professionals from Birmingham Rotaract Club and Parker High School students join forces to assist The Gardens

On Saturday, The Gardens had the pleasure of having Birmingham Rotaract Club along with students from Parker High School work with on two needed service projects. Approximately 30 students and young professionals assisted in re-mulching the Barber Alabama Woodlands interpretive trails and laying Woven Groundcover Fabric  down in the Herb Army lathe house. Both groups volunteer their time and muscle for 3 hours to complete both needed projects.
 Thank you Birmingham Rotaract Club and Parker High School 
Thundering Herd!
