After pounding rains, no problem. We expected the soil to settle 20%.
The weather cooperated with our plan. Thursday morning nearly 20 men, women, and children showed up at 7:30, eager to move a mountain…of potting soil.
It rained all night but paused long enough for us to shovel five yards of soil into wheelbarrows, walk it 300 feet to fill vacant planter boxes, then spread a pallet of mulch. In two hours we were done. More photos to follow…after the rain stops.
This is as close to the garden as a dump truck could get.
Lumber beds placed on the ground.
Then sunk into the ground and anchored.
Sizing up the tasks at hand.
We had “diggers, runners, and spreaders”.
This is what it’s all about: Children enjoying gardening.
Good materials+hard work=happy outcome.
