We assistied the International Rescue Committee's El Cajon community garden, by pulling weeds - actually eradicating the bermuda grss in a small section.

I can't say that Bret, Nicole and I cleared a large area for planting.  I think the ground we prepared that day, for me, simple started seeds of understandiing.  We worked with several refugees from Iran.  And during that brief moment of time, we shared a common goal - pulling weeds.  But how incredible the different journeys we took to arrive in this community garden together.  I will never know the stories, I don't want to guess.  But I left feeling this simple effort made a positive difference.
