Volunteers from O&G Industries, Post University’s Baseball Team, ServiceMaster Albino, Fine Home Contracting and the CT Concrete Promotion Council all pitched in over two months to make improvements to the Community Garden on Burton Street in Waterbury.
A volunteer team from O&G Industries led the way in November. The volunteers removed several trees, performed a major landscape cleanup, and planted trees at the site of the garden. A&J Tree Removal of Thomaston donated brush chipping services, while MCR Property Services of Woodbury contributed skid steer services to the project.
In December, volunteers from Post University’s baseball team, ServiceMaster Albino, Fine Home Contracting, and the CT Concrete Promotion Council performed a major cleanup at the Community Garden and at 28 and 32 Burton Street – the site of future home construction projects in partnership with Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater Waterbury.
Volunteers contributed over 225 hours of labor to complete the project which will continue in the Spring of 2022 with the construction of plant beds at the community garden, as well as tree removal and a further cleanup at the 28-32 Burton Street property.
