We had a very strong volunteer turnout today. Above are Alan (left) and Ron P. out hauling shredded bark to mulch the parking lot islands along with Larry H. and Lloyd (both below leaning on their forks and taking an early break..). The guys did a nice job collectively mulching a huge area and were joined by Gene later in the morning. The second photo down shows Ron R. (left) and Bob C. composting multiple areas that will ultimately be planted with seasonals this spring. Rollie (third photo down) was in as was Jenny M., (painting), Dr. Gredler (painting), Maury (errands), Del (cleaning), Marsha (photography) and many others. Pat C. (fourth photo down) continued her assessment of labeling needs (repairs, replacements, etc.) in multiple areas and Gary was inside working on this same project as well as producing new labels for incoming plants. The fifth photo down shows (left to right), Peg, Kathy and Eva. The ladies did a great job with some early weeding and collected lots more debris from garden areas adjacent to the sunken garden. The sixth photo down shows John being hauled around by Terry…the guys brought up the “cutting display” bench as it’s that time of year to show folks what’s in bloom and where it’s located. Dick H. ran multiple loads to the dump while Ron Y. (seventh photo down) continued staining portions of the new cedar obelisks the guys are making (see Vern and Dave in the eighth photo down). Jim D. was part of that crew too and we also saw Bob D., Tina B., Harry M., Cheryl R. and many others today. See further below for more photographs from today.
