Live United Day with the Walmart Audit Group
On Thursday, June 22nd, 40 volunteers from the Walmart Audit Group volunteered at Tri Cycle Farms in celebration of the United Way's Live United Day. The original April date for Live United Day was thoroughly rained out, but June 22nd was sunny with moments of shade. Walmart Audit Group volunteers served their community alongside Tri Cycle Farms staff, AmeriCorps VISTA members, and our AmeriCorps NCCC team.
Walmart Audit Group volunteers planted six rows of healthy, chemical free vegetables, including melons, squash, herbs, and a long bed of trenched tomatoes. Volunteers also mulched areas around our new fruit trees and in newly restructured garden pathways. Helpful interns harvested and processed Egyptian walking onions as well as Malabar spinach. After weeding and planting, volunteers covered the beds in straw to protect the soil and seedlings.
Tri Cycle Farms thanks all of its Walmart Audit group volunteers! It was a humid afternoon, but you all worked diligently and stayed hydrated! We are looking forward to next year's Live United Day! Thanks again!
