Mitsubishi Electric will step up to help Project Independence move their community garden to its new Huntington Beach location. On May 18th 30 Staff volunteers will help move dozens of large planter boxes from the current location in Costa Mesa to an area allocated to Project Independence by the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center. “This is a huge job that would be very difficult to accomplish without the extra help from Mitsubishi,” stated Cameron Cleveland from Project Independence. “We were grateful to have the land opened to us, but I am not sure we could accomplish this without extra help.”
The community garden was established for use by Project Independence clients who are challenged with developmental disabilities. “The opportunity to work outside stimulates a sense of accomplishment, independence and pride.” Cleveland stated.
