What is your wish for this project?

Our goal is to collaborate with visiting college students from across the country and help revitalize and beautify a lower income area of our town. We will recycle trash, plant flowers and do whatever it takes to transform the area into a "spruced" up area for spring. After a full day of work, we hope residents will feel good about their neighborhood and homes.

How did it go?

"Spring Spruce" was a very successful project as our Roots & Shoots members teamed up with college students and Habitat for Humanity to help a low income community right here in the U.S. during spring break. We targeted a specific street in an area of our home town and revitalized the area by working on landscaping, painting, gardening, recycling and making many other upgrades that brought smiles to the faces of local residents and those who pass through daily.
