Spring Mitzvah Day was quite a day for Till and Tend and the gardeners of TRS. We planted 7 (!) vegetable gardens, including one at TRS, and six at area shelters. Best of all, where possible we got the facilities’ residents to help, and to tell us how last year they enjoyed the fruits of our–and their–labor. One resident told us that he worked the garden every day last season, and that residents enjoyed an abundance of fresh veggies. Another resident asked if we were a Jewish organization, and then said he was Palestinian. He said he enjoyed working with us and looked forward to seeing the tomatoes grow. Project Leaders were Wendy Cohen, Doug Ginsburg, & Jill Kamen. Volunteers included David Lawrence, Ronnie and Rob Schulman, Jonathon Ross, Tom & Marie Tibor, Rayna Lifland, Carolina, Daniel, and his dad, Asher Altman, Kathy Glaser, and Marjorie Yaro.
Volunteers are still needed to maintain the TRS garden.
