Garden Workday, 2/1/14

Above: One of our new plant signs. 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
