About 25-30 high school students from YESC Seattle (YMCA Earth Services Corps) joined us at Golden Gardens on Saturday, Jan. 30. We removed ivy and blackberry along the bottom of the stairs that go from the middle parking lot up to the dog park. Altogether, we cleared and mulched about 2500 square feet. A good day!
The work party ran from 10 to 2, with a break for lunch. But the enthusiasm didn’t dim, and the students dug into finishing up the work and getting a solid load of mulch down (about 5 yards).
As the time to leave drew near, we all pitched in to a vigorous but satisfying bucket brigade to get the mulch onto the site.
A good, hard working time was had by all. The next work party at Golden Gardens will be on February 13. We hope to see you there!
