This space wasn't always pristine though. Over the past 20 years this area has been revitalized, cleaned up, and used to reintroduce native plants to the area. All this was done by the hard work of over 200,000 hours of volunteer work by the local community.
Every 3rd Saturday people gather in the Grove to help with whatever the daily project is. When I arrived the group gathered and told us what the plan for the day was. They have leaders who divided us up into teams and a professional gardener who would give us direction on what to do.
