PEACH Community Outreach: Lawrence Little (PEACH AmeriCorps member) worked with homeowner, Delores Rogers, to create a garden in an area of her yard where the soil tested positive for lead. Together they enclosed the area with landscaping timbers and transplanted a low maintenance cactus plant and some 4 o'clock perennials from the front yard to the bare soil area and they added additional stepping stones. The garden and stepping stones will serve as a barrier to prevent her from tracking soil into the house.
