Austinites came out in full force Saturday to participate in “Be the Change” day a national day of service inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s exhortation “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Several gathered in Pease District Park to weed grass and mulch new and existing trees. Akshay Prakash, 11, empties a wheelbarrel load of mulch so Sujata Jere, left, can spread it on this newly planted tree. “We are from India so its good to see everyone come out today. What’s surprising is its not just Indians, but Americans and others as well.”
