Greater DC Cares Serves at TMA



Thurgood Marshall Academy’s Garden hosted a group from Hands On: Greater DC Cares’ annual Servathon event this past Saturday! 



The Servathon is the largest service event in DC each year, and over 8,000 individuals volunteered their time during this year's events on Friday April 20, and Saturday, April 21.


No projects were too large for TMA's twenty-five volunteers—who did everything from moving raised beds, building new raised beds along the building, mulching the garden, clearing out and leveling the compost area, assembling a compost tumbler, and weeding, weeding, and more weeding! Four hours after the group started work, the garden looked amazing! Many thanks to the dedicated workers who helped improve several areas of the garden, making it more accessible and useful for our students.
