    This past Monday Goldman Sachs Community TeamWorks volunteers came to BBG ready to help with some spring clean-up along Cherry Esplanade. In the morning, BBG arborists Chris Roddick and Travis Wolf led the group in mulching and weeding the liberty maples that line the esplanade and in the afternoon the volunteers had the rare opportunity to plant two new Prunus ‘Kanzan’ cherry trees.

    Thanks to all the Goldman Sachs volunteers for their hard work. We'll see you at the next volunteer day in June!
