Cindy's youth team saved the day at Arch street today. It was the annual fish fry run by the One Love One Hill team. The youth put down a yard of mulch, a half a yard of pea stone, and weeded out the park. They made the park look superb for the party. Hopefully they had fun doing it too. The music from the party kept us going, for sure.
Today the hard scape went in! Denise, Chloe, and I carved out the paths and filled them up with pea stone. It is amazing to see what was just a sketch on paper come to life! We mapped out where the shrubs will go, and of course gave all the existing plants a good soak.
We finished inserting the brick path through the butterfly garden and in-filling it with rock dust. We also offloaded a yard of wood chips, in preparation of a heavy mulch job around the perimeter of the garden space next week.
Good workday Thursday night. Lots of energy from the kids. We cleared brush and picked up trash around the perimeter of the lot, watered plants in, drew a chalk mural in preparation for movie night and practiced a mindfulness breathing exercise.
