Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing
On Saturday, more than 60 volunteers helped with outdoor beautification projects including invasive plant removal, litter cleanup and other grounds work during APAH’s Earth Day Community Clean Up.
Girls on the Run-DC
The girls completed a practice 5K as they gear up for their celebratory 5K this Sunday at Anacostia Park. They’ve learned life skills such as using a positive chord versus a negative chord this season, healthy habits for life, to have an attitude of gratitude and now are running their 5K. Good luck GOTR-DC girls!!! Join in the fun at www.gotrdc.org.
Washington Parks & People
Washington Parks & People had a great time this week creating a pop-up “parklet” in the midst of the DC urban jungle, and later used the grass from the “parklet” to fill in near their Riverside Healthy Living Center. They also welcomed volunteers from the City Kids Wilderness Project to our North Columbia Heights Green, and yesterday spent time in Marvin Gaye Park, learning about nonviolent communication!
Kassimu and Bon Ifas Robert, primary school students from the Magoma Project, began building their goat pen this week! Soon they will raise goats, sell the milk, and use the profit to serve meals to their fellow classmates so that everyone can learn on full stomachs!
