Another Weekend, Another Show! With More to Come!

February 9 – 10 was another productive weekend thanks to the 12 amazing volunteers that showed up.   Erik Gundersen’s fabulous plans for our shed are being implemented.  We have about 2/3 of the pavers laid for the shed and community area.

The retaining wall started the week-end of February 2nd is almost complete with back fill of pea gravel.  We are having more concrete blocks delivered this week and will start the next retaining wall.  The blocks are smaller and should be easier to handle.

Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel has donated six cubic yards of pea gravel, and given us 50% off on all other materials we order.  Mutual Materials has joined in helping by providing a great price cut on the pavers and other materials we needed to lay the pavers.

And thanks to Ann for delivering her wonderful soup on Saturday, and to Susan for her wonderful soup on Sunday.
Please let us know if you would like to make and deliver food for the volunteers.  It counts as volunteer hours.  We eat standing up and it really makes a difference!

Please do not feel that you need a special skill to join us.  There are many things to be done!  And shoveling pea gravel and mulch and moving it with wheel barrows is important!

Reminder:  Please turn in all your volunteer hours through January 31.  Please contact Sharon Knoll if you have any questions.

  • February 16 and 17   10:00 – 2:00Moving leaf mulch to plots and covering with burlap

    Hi,

    I am from a local magnolia church. I am in charge of finding a community service project for our church. We had come up with starting a garden as a way for coming together as a community. I was in the initial phase of exploring permits, city approval, etc and then I came across your site. We would love to volunteer. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.

    Thank you,

    Eric
