Work Party

Thank you to everyone that helped out at the work party on Saturday. The weather cleared up and the sun came out for the basically the whole four hours that we were our there, no more no less. We cleared a huge amount of debris, equipment, and trash out of the 1/4 acre, weedwacked, raked, and piled compost.
My my estimate, we had about 20 folks working, 5 kids playing, 3 dogs racing around in circles, and about 5 people that stopped to see what we were up to.
Here are the next steps:
-take garbage to dump....anyone with access to a truck?
-turn over beds with a shovel (hard work, but most important!)
-seed sugar snap peas, plant strawberries
-wood chips between rows
-more clean-up
