On Earth Day, April 22, it took many hands to accomplish re-mulching most of the aisles at the garden. Crews cleared and leveled the aisles, laid down cardboard for weed block, and distributed 25 yards of new mulch in the aisles.
Urban Harvest generously donated 18 yards of mulch, supplies, snacks and water. WCG purchased additional mulch. Urban Harvest also sent a crew of eight volunteers. Twenty-two gardeners helped out to earn part of their annual volunteer hours commitment. WCG Work Day Coordinator, Nancy, also hustled up many individual volunteers and groups from corporate organizations and schools making a total of 61 people in the workforce.
Thanks to all who attended and made this record breaking Work Day a success!
Note: Twenty-five yards of mulch didn’t go as far as you might think! We will have an additional mulch delivery and the May 20 Community Service Day will be a continuation of this project to cover all the garden aisles. Come join us 8AM to noon!
