5th street had an informal work party on Sunday. Steve from Lazy J delivered 7 yards of compost at 10 AM:
Several volunteers got right to work shoveling and hauling compost to the willow tree to prepare it for planting. After several hours the bed was ready. Hank brought a few gooseberries and Airport Garden donated a dozen herb plants.
We made a narrow path that loops back under the tree. It will get some cardboard and alder chips soon. The area along the fence needs a 2×8 sunk in the ground to keep the neighbor’s grass and weeds out. We’ll put more cardboard and alder chips afterwards to keep the weeds down.
