Garden Work Party Success!

Many thanks to all the volunteers who showed up on Saturday, February 4, for a morning of loving labor at the Davidson Green Schoolyard.  We got a lot of things done.  For example:  we dug up fennel from the Riparian Zone:

Some of the roots were amazingly long:

We trimmed back the dreaded pampas grass:

. . . and carted it away to our junk pile:

Inside the Garden, we harvested and staked the fava beans, trimmed flowers, and transplanted the artichokes:

The compost was full of worms!  We removed barrels of finished compost to fill the Garden beds, then organized the two bins into:  a) nearly-done, and b) add-more-trimmings-here.

The tool shed needed organizing, too!  So, Luat and Ashley spent the whole two hours clearing things out . . .

And putting them back in . . . with right-sized containers, and LABELS!

That wasn’t all.  We had a great time doing it!

Thanks, everyone!  See you next time:  Saturday, March 3, 9:30-11:30 am at the Davidson Middle School Garden.  (School address is 280 Woodland Avenue in San Rafael.  We’re way in the back of the school, by the wooden bridge over the Riparian Zone.)
