    Very satisfying action that resulted in the removal of hundreds of himalayan blackberry root crowns. Felt like our volunteering efforts were needed and appreciated. Great times in the Everett Crowley Park!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
