“I have a community garden here and I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 30 years. A few of us got asked about all this trash up against the fence. It should be cleaned up and kept clean because we keep our area up. We probably have a hundred kids out here today. It’s fantastic. It really is. It’s awesome. They’re a good group of people and they’re working hard too. I hope the community continues to get involved and help out more. It’s a lot of fun. You also get a lot of exercise. You see me sweating now, but I am enjoying it. And I advise any person to get outdoors and work, get that vitamin D, it’ll help. It’s great for you especially as you get older.”
