Thank You!

The Chaparral Community Green Thumbs would like to truly thank all the volunteers for coming out on build day. It was amazing to see the garden develop throughout the day and we couldn’t have done it with all of your hard work and dedication!! Build day was a true testament of how a community can pull together to accomplish anything.
