Sabrina, Tom and Zephyr arrived with home-made pear muffins and went to work. Tom raked out all of the garden beds and composted the waste. He then disconnected the smaller rain cistern from its downspout. I turned to pruning and cutting back the middle flower bed and southeast flower bed. Sabrina emptied the shed, cleaned all of the tools, organized the shed contents and re-filled the shed and then pulled all of the tomato stakes and cages and tarps and similarly reorganized and stacked them. Not finished, she then pulled the bags of mulch and garden soil, and pruned back the invading raspberry bushes. The shed area has never looked better.

A larger group of teen volunteers was helping out Urban Connections. Cathy stopped by to tell me that they completed four hours worth of projects in just two hours. I suggested that they attack the litter in our alley, but she thought that they were burned out. Instead, a group of young men came up and carried our 16 bags of yard waste (i.e., brambles) to the alley dumpsters for pick-up on Tuesday.
