Wow! We had an exciting workday last Saturday. A lot of work was done, both inside and outside the school.
Theo swept the gravel and sand from the paved semicircle in front of the school:A leafblower was used to blow the sand off the surface underneath the K-1 play structure. Too much sand makes the surface slippery to run on:
We also re-planted the succulent bed by the front door. Last year there was a flourishing succulent garden here, unfortunately the summer construction destroyed most of the plants. So we replanted. Succulents are pretty hardy and should survive even in our drought year!
We also had some neighborhood volunteers stop by. One couple rebuilt our herb spiral and another offered to help make the fences for our sidewalk gardens. It’s great to get to know our neighbors, we hope we can get more input from the community.
Inside the school, a fantastic group of volunteers from ELAC came to give the first-floor bathrooms a deep-clean. Their work left the bathrooms looking and smelling great.
Garden Workdays will be the first Saturday of every month, from 10am-2pm. See you next time!
