The setting is in the neighborhood lot, at the corner of Sycamore Street and Emerson Avenue

The main events are working at the garden trying to clean up all the trash there so that they can start making the dream garden.
The first problem is that after they were done cleaning the garden, someone came to the lot, jumped over the fence, and trashed it! The lot became worse then how it was before they started cleaning it!
The second problem is that Rosie asked Luz to go to the movies. Luz said yes, and it was the same day that they were going to start the garden.
The first solution is they spend all night trying to clean up the mess and other people helped Luz to clean it up.
Rosie takes some one else to the movies, Luz makes the dream garden, and they feel bad for each other because the got mad at each others’ actions.
The group members are Anissa and Melissa M.
My favorite part is when Rosie and Luz became friends again (Melissa M.)
My favorite part is when they finished the garden and when Rosie and Luz were friends again (Anissa)
