Volunteers from Local Initiatives Support Corporation and Deutsche Bank joined Rebuilding Together NYC on Wednesday, May 24 to revitalize WHEDco’s Urban Horizons Student Garden.

The group installed a foundation for the garden’s greenhouse, landscaped the area with native plants, installed raised beds for students to grow vegetables and herbs and gave the WHEDco Teen Center’s computer lab a fresh coat of paint.

Nancy Biberman, WHEDco president and founder, and Davon Russell, WHEDco executive vice president, dug in to the community garden rehabilitation.
