The 20th Annual Beautify Chula Vista community cleanup was a blast! Nearly 300 volunteers came out to help make our City even more beautiful and were able to pickup over 4,000 pounds of litter and debris from streets, alleys, and waterways. We were also able to paint 14 dumpsters and covered up over 800 square feet of graffiti. Big thank you to all our volunteers that came out and to our sponsors San Diego Community Power Cox Communications and SDG&E . Thank you for all your support and we will see you next year! 💚🌎

Fall Garden Tip: If your garden is disappearing under a cover of fall foliage, that's okay! In fact, gardeners recommend adding leaves and dying plants to your garden to compost over the winter. As the leaves and plant matter decompose, those nutrients are added to your soil for the next growing season. 🍂🧡
