Yesterday I helped put together picnic tables and plant bushes in a park in the old Italian neighborhood of Des Moines as part of Rebuilding Together.
Jodi Henke (below), radio editor for Living the Country Life, and I worked as a team to dig and plant. We knew enough to wear chore boots in the cold rain. Jodi also wore her fishing gear.
If you have a chance to participate in a Rebuilding Together project in your neighborhood, consider joining the fun!
