A big thank you to everyone that helped us build this beautiful new garden at John Adams Middle School on Saturday, October 8th!
Even though we were sweating, digging, shoveling, and working hard, everyone had a great time bonding over such a meaningful experience. Volunteers gathered at 9:00am and were greeted with water, coffee and breakfast pastries. We quickly got to work, transferring a 50/50 compost and dirt mixture to the site of the new garden.
While one group was working on transferring the soil mixture, there were other groups designated to perform crucial tasks for the garden. One group installed a drip system so that the garden could be watered easily and regularly. Another group took on the challenge of building the raised beds for the garden. And yet another group was asked to help paint garden signs.
Below are just a few photos of the event, and there are more to come! Thank you again to everyone involved, everyone who donated to our kickstarter, who shared our information with others, and who joined us in this important garden build. It is not always easy to sacrifice a Saturday morning, but it certainly is worthwhile and heartwarming. We greatly appreciate your kindness.
