Washington Parks & People
This has been a big week for Washington Parks & People, as they lay the groundwork (literally) for their new South Garden at the Josephine Butler Parks Center. On Monday, staff and DC Green Corps trainees braved the heat and humidity to lay down 15 cubic yards of topsoil. (That’s a lot of dirt!) The following day, they installed a carpet of rich sod, which will be so much nicer than the sweltering parking lot that preceded it!
