“Lucy has always thought of others first. It has always been Lucy’s
good-natured heart to be this way.” Michelle called Robbie Bos, the Big Bear
Valley Community Gardens Project founder and coordinator, to set up a meeting
between Robbie and Lucy.

places like the Big Bear Simple Supper program that feeds local people in need.
that is how you turn lemonade into potatoes!
