Gratitude

Thank you to the volunteers of all ages who, undaunted by the chilly weather on Saturday, came out to help us build garden boxes. Ten folks showed up to help us disassemble (actually, it was more like “tear apart”) fence panels, saw the re-purposed wood into the necessary lengths, screw the boxes together, and paint them. We were able to construct 5 boxes (3 of which even got painted) and prepare the pieces of wood for a 6th.
