Sat, 09/21/2013 - 2:28pm

Prior to the USA vs. Mexico World Cup Qualifier at Crew Stadium on September 10th, MLS WORKS will partner with the Columbus Crew to conduct a Crew Massive Makeover of the Linden Village Green Space Community Garden. The beautification is an opportunity for staff members from various MLS Clubs and the League office to give back to the Linden community while in town for the MLS Business Summit. MLS will join community volunteers to carryout various activities including building a fence on the property, assembling a storage unit, patio and pergola, installing benches and a swing, planting flowers and trees and prepping planters for next season’s vegetables. The day of service is part of “Community Care Day” in the City of Columbus and is in conjunction with the Greater Linden Development Corporation and the United Way of Columbus. Davey Tree, JD Equipment and Scotts Miracle Gro will be donating time, staff, equipment, product and expertise to complete this project. This project is being produced in partnership with Linden Village Green Space, Community Garden Too, Sankofa Urban Farming Project, Linden Garden Association, Fostering in the Community, Greater Linden Development Corporation and the City of Columbus.
