It was a blazing hot week at the Washington Youth Garden, but that didn’t take away from the excitement the volunteers from Student Conservation Association (SCA) had. "The garden is so beautiful, but it needs love,“ says one SCA member. It takes a lot of tender love and care to maintain the different plots. SCA helped by weeding, harvesting, and planting new plants. "By working at the garden it helped teach me more about the environment and how things work. You really get in touch with all of your senses while being here,” another SCA member explains. They got to smell the different scents, taste the different plants, and see them expand or contract. It was a fun first week and they are even more ready for the rest of the projects.
