Today’s workday went extremely well even with an extremely thin crew (7 folks which included one beautiful 6 months pregnant lady!) We got the new playground in ship shape by taking down all the weeds and sweeping the rubber surfaces and paths nearby. All the bark was spread evenly again on the landscaped areas and then we were off to the Gambier Plaza to take on the weeds around the fountain and cut back the crab grass that’s slowly starting to encroach on the plaza. As if that wasn’t enough, my magic hardworking crew still had enough energy to move large amounts of wood that gardener Ken Kelley was clearing from the old Cyprus trees at the Harvard street entrance. Please see the piles of wood for yourselves. By this time we were all quite exhausted and we were unable to continue our efforts on Harvard Street but there was so much to show for our hard work.
Thank you again so much to those who came out on a weekday, even during a world cup event. It goes to show, all it takes is 7 folks to make magic happen in McLaren Park.
Pictures soon to come!
