AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps Members Remove Old Wall

InterIm CDA's Danny Woo Community Garden is the grateful recipient of the hard work of eight AmeriCorps volunteers.  These intrepid young people are making the garden safer by replacing a deteriorating railroad tie wall with a new retaining wall.  The garden was originally built by an earlier generation of civic-minded young people in 1975.  Uncle Bob Santos, who organized the original garden project continues to champion the garden and share stories with visitors.  Pictured here are Rick, Angela, and Heather.  Thank you!
