Last weekend as well as in the Global Youth Service Day I went with my wife to a park to plant trees (after all as José Martí once said: before die you should "Plant a tree, write a book, have a son"). It was exhausting but a fulfilling activity and it was great to see that the trees we planted months ago were healthy and still there.
The Miami-Dade county parks workers are very nice and organized people and they had it all under control so the job was very fruitful. Specifically with this park (Chuck Pezoldt) they are improving its services and we helped them saving some money to more costly activities like installing lights or improving the sport courts in the park, while doing something good for the environment and the the community.
To learn more about this or other activities, please refer to the Parks Foundation of Miami-Dade County.
And, because not everything is hard work, I leave you with the Harlem Shake we did back in April. This video is also posted on the Parks Foundation Facebook site.
