Thank you Oxy students for your hard work!
Many thanks to the Occidental College students who came out to the garden on Saturday, January 23 as part of their 2010 Martin Luther King Jr. day of service. The MLK Challenge is a day of service to commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1994, Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act, officially designating MLK Day as a national day of service. The MLK Challenge model provides college students across the country with a fun and challenging way of serving in honor of Dr. King.
Thank you to the Oxy crew: Noel, Jessica, Stefanie, Bessie, Morgan, Mary, Beverly, Jeff, Amy, Kendall, and Sarah (we’re missing someone!) for your hard work and positive attitude. It was a spectacularly beautiful and sunny day to be outdoors working in the garden after a week of grey skies and rain!
These students seriously rocked! We were blown away with their stamina, determination and spirit of comradery. We have to brag a little here – these guys spread an entire 15 cubic yards of mulch over the garden! They’ve got it goin’ on at Oxy!
Check out the photo album from Oxy MLK day of service for more pics! We hope to see Oxy back at the garden soon!
