This May, CRC Arlington office employees spent a day outside volunteering with City Blossoms, a Washington D.C. nonprofit committed to cultivating healthy lifestyles through providing green spaces for city youth and community members.
Around 20 employees spent the day weeding, planting, and landscaping to make an outdoor space optimal for City Blossoms to achieve their goals and so community members can enjoy the outdoor space. Members worked at the Marion Street Intergenerational Garden site, where healthy produce is harvested by and for local community members.
Since 2009, City Blossoms has made a difference across the District though its commitment to community-engaging programming and after-school opportunities. CRC volunteers look forward to giving back with this non-profit year after year.
Our members believe in the importance of functional outdoor space and experiences that come from such places, and how smart city planning can shape and transform lives. Supporting volunteers enjoyed the day in the spring sun and giving back to the local community.
