Monument_volunteer_storyphotoFifty volunteers from Keller Williams Realty in Walnut Creek descended on the Monument Community First 5 Center last week to transform an unused dirt lot into a vibrant learning garden and outdoor classroom for preschoolers and their families.

The event was part of Keller Williams’ annual RED Day campaign, a day of service for Keller Williams associates to give back to important causes in their communities. The Monument Community First 5 Center was the recipient of these generous services this year.

Named the “Garden of Good Things” by staff at the First 5 Center, the garden will become an outdoor classroom and provide new programs for children and parents focused on sensory art, science, nutrition, and gardening.

Here’s what the lot looked like before:
