Tulane freshmen

Today we had a group of Tulane freshmen volunteering at Carver Prep building a community garden with 8 planter boxes. The students came to us thanks to Nick Tringali of the Tulane Center for Public Service, who’s been taking them to service projects and other outings as part of an orientation week. They agreed to help us out with the Super Service Challenge, and learned about AmeriCorps and the grant that made today’s project possible. And after their hard work in the hot sun, they took us out to lunch. We’ll take that kind of group every time! Thanks, y’all!
