Activities include planting seedlings, spreading topsoil and fertilizer, weeding, etc. The day will be highlighted by a tour of the city of Overtown -- the oldest African-American neighborhood in Miami -- led by historian Dr. Marvin Dunn, founder of Roots In The City. The project will start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 2 p.m.
T.R.I.P. volunteers will also participate in a closed volunteer project at Miami Rescue Mission on Friday, October 5. They will spend the day landscaping the grounds, painting the facility, and food to the shelter residents. This project has already met its volunteer capacity.
