On June 27, 2010, a group of volunteers went to Turtle Boy and cleaned up the weeds and put down mulch. It was a fun event with great spirit. And it all started with a few comments on the Worcester Turtle Boy Facebook Page. Cathy Walsh of Sprout! mentioned that there was a mess of weeds. Suddenly, there was an event planned and people showed up to help. I love the way people will come together to do stuff like this!
