A friend of mine invited me to a volunteer gardening event to restore the river habitat by planting native plants along the Mission Valley Nature Preserve. After confirming with her that it was truly "family friendly", I decided to bring Axel along to his first volunteering event.
Like most two year old boys, he is pretty into Dirt.
He brought his own shovel to dig the holes
It felt good to be outside and get our hands dirty for a good cause
