Today was a day of celebration! In honor of Earth Day, volunteer appreciation, and our group's one year anniversary in Oregon, we planted flowers and cleaned up trash at our group's adopted park, Evergreen Park in Hillsboro. You can see how much our group has grown since our inaugural flower planting and park adoption event on April 30, 2010! The City of Hillsboro Parks and Recreation staff who provided tools, flowers, gloves, training, and supervision, were amazed at how quickly our group, including youth ages 2-16, got the job done. When the outdoor work-celebration was finished, we continued celebrating indoors at RFH Roots & Shoots headquarters with individual make-your-own pizzas, including vegan and gluten-free options, donated by Whole Foods Tanasbourne. We look forward to our next year of service-learning projects!
