Here’s what the space looked like before.

Beckner Contracting gives back. Fifty volunteers,  including Craig Beckner (helping out as project manager and construction worker), descended upon Monument Community First 5 Center in Concord to transform an unused dirt lot into a vibrant learning garden for low-income preschoolers and their families.

The Monument Community First 5 Center provides free parenting and enrichment classes for families with children up to age five.

The “Garden of Good Things” now serves as an outdoor classroom, offering new and expanded programs for children and parents, such as sensory art, science, nutrition and gardening.
