Things are moving and shaking over at the Narbonne School Garden. What use to be a forgotten, overgrown area is now in a full swing revival!
We had our first pre-workday with The Asomugha Foundation on Saturday, April 6. With many rakes, shovels and paint brushes in hand, NFL Pro Bowler and new San Francisco 49er Nnamdi Asomugha and 40 student volunteers from his ACTS program showed us the true meaning of giving back to the community. Together we planted seedlings, renewed worn picnic tables with several loving coats of paint and weeded our rose beds. We are very thankful to the Asomugha Foundation for their contribution to the Narbonne School Garden.
We are also so very, very thankful to Cornerstone Construction Group for all their efforts in prepping the two-acre area. Among many improvements, including upgraded irrigation and electrical, is a beautiful outdoor stage that will provide our budding Narbonne “stars” the opportunity to perform under the stars for years to come. Cornerstone Construction Group has been a Sharefest partner since the very beginning and has completed community projects such as The Historical Morrell House in Redondo Beach, an Extreme Makeover: Home Edition build in 2006, the Cheryl Green Community Center in the Harbor Gateway, the installation of two scoreboards and a school garden for San Pedro High School. Now that’s how you give back to the community!!!
We also want to thank Mamma Chia for “seeding our souls” and sharing the Mamma Chia love on Saturday. Their thoughtful donation of vitality beverages and squeeze packs kept our community day humming. Click here to see how this project is progressing.
