The Children’s University, located at 4621 Park Springs, Arlington, has requested our Club’s attention at the school. The old “raised beds” are no longer “raised” but have dry rotted to a point that they need to be replaced. Mark Bowers is meeting with the teaching staff at the school to get an idea of what our club can do and the participation by the parents. Our club has committed to spend up to $300.00 to install one 4’ x 12’ cinder block raised bed. Additional club participation will depend on the financial and physical participation by the parents. UPDATE: the parents have so far raised $800 towards the project! Click here to visit the website.
