We spent Saturday the 5th of November playing in the dirt in Roxbury for The Boston Parks and Recreation Department. It was a fun day of meeting other environmental enthusiasts while getting some fresh air.
It was quite simple. The event coordinator, Paul, placed plants and shrubs around the area we were working on, we would dig a hole, air out the roots of the lucky plant, place it in the hole and cover it gently with dirt. We even made a video of our adventure (excuse the French!)
As you’ll see in the video a pizza delivery guy decided that our hard work was to be commended and gave us a slightly over cooked pizza! Thank you random delivery man! Fun discoveries were also made, as depicted on the right.
Volunteering is a great deal of fun, it makes you go outside (sometimes), meet new people and you’ll even learn new things! You can look for local opportunities on Boston Cares and start working very soon! All that is required is the will to help!
