On Monday, Mayor Slay and members of his staff joined students from the University of Missouri St. Louis (UMSL) and Gateway Greening at its Bell Garden carriage house in the Covenant Blu neighborhood to help prepare the non-profit for the upcoming community gardening season.

This is the fifth year Mayor Slay and his team have taken the challenge to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through service to others in our community.

Gateway Greening was founded in 1984, and has since become one of the City's strongest partners in stabilizing communities and empowering residents to take ownership of their neighborhoods.

Through educational urban farming programs, community beautification projects, and support of over 140 community gardens across St. Louis, members of Gateway Greening are inspiring residents to reap the benefits of a more sustainable City.
