The paint crew: Ellen, Melissa, Karen, and Emily mix it up as they prepare to paint raised planter boxes when U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Peopleâs Garden Executive Master Gardeners, friends, and family, along with Washington Capitals fans volunteer in District of Columbia Public Schoolsâ (DCPS) Beautification Day, on Saturday, August 25, 2012, at Thurgood Marshall Elementary School, in Washington, D.C. Each year people are invited to help âspruce upâ public school facilities in preparation for the first day of school. More than 70 volunteers pitched in at this large school facility. The Peopleâs Garden effort involves building and painting raised planter boxes, then preparing the soil mixture so they are âready to grow.â Additionally, a team that includes descendants of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall assembles a prefabricated garden toolshed. The Justiceâs son, John Marshall leads the team, which includes Brianna the Justiceâs great-grand daughter in one of many multi-generational efforts at this school today. Washington Capitals Forward Mike Riberio, his family and mascot Slapshot participated in every project underway at Marshall School. From the outside gardens, to inside murals, and robotics worktable construction, the teams made their goals. USDA Photo by Lance Cheung.
