    On Thursday, June 28, a new cohort of Goldman Sachs Community TeamWorks volunteers braved the heat and came to BBG to work in the Children’s Garden. In the morning, teens from BBG’s Garden Apprentice Program led the group in a weed identification game and taught volunteers the key skills they would need to complete their assigned tasks. The volunteers and Garden Apprentices then worked side by side for the remainder of the day weeding, double-digging beds, planting seedlings, and harvesting crops. At the end of the day, volunteers were able “shop” the harvest for fresh vegetables to take home to their families. Thanks to all the Goldman Sachs volunteers for their hard work!
