Volunteer landscaper Lance Greer transformed an unkempt area of Bird Rock Elementary School's campus into a beautiful garden, thanks to a donation by the Sternberg family.

Last month, a landscaper named Lance Greer (owner of Lance Greer Consulting) voluntarily planted a garden inside the Bird Rock Elementary campus. His landscaping skills can be seen all around our community, including the plants in front of Beaumont’s Restaurant and Bird Rock Coffee Roasters. The Sternberg family donated the money to pay for the school’s plants and Lance and his crew volunteered to plant them, gratis! It is very good to see people coming out and helping our community, just for the sheer purpose of helping out. The more community service performed for our neighborhood, the better! Before Mr. Greer worked his magic, that school area was a broken eyesore, just dirt and roots, unkempt and unclean. Now as you can see, that same area is just beautiful and puts a smile on many of the teachers and parents as they walk by to the kindergarten classes. This will be called The Steinberg Garden. This is just another typical example of how great our community is and it will remain great as long as we have such caring individuals who are willing to donate their time and money for the benefit of their neighbors and businesses. Thank you to the Sternberg family and Mr. Greer!
