Bank of Tokyo at Roberto Clemente Garden

Friday August 12th was a busy day at the Roberto Clemente Community Garden. With the assistance of 25 volunteers from the Bank of Tokyo we built two picnic tables and four benches.  We also waterproofed the gazebo and planted lots of perennials and annuals in the flower bed along the front of the garden.  Thanks so much to all of our volunteers and gardeners, the garden looks amazing!
