While I unloaded tools and refreshments from my car, she unloaded tools, a wagon and a wheelbarrow from our shed. I then went down to Urban Connections to pick up our lawn mower since the grass was getting pretty tall. I texted Cathy about borrowing her wheel barrow, too. Rayna and I then began shoveling wood chips (donated by Donley Tree Service) and dumping them on the Garden’s paths. Our new gardener, Amy, arrived about the same time as a very pregnant Sabrina, Tom and Zephyr. Amy and Sabrina spread chips which the rest of us shoveled into wheel barrows.

wood chips over there to surround it. Mari came and helped to spread wood chips, and pick up some litter, too. As everyone started to fade into the background, Lea and the kids scraped the wood chips into a smaller and tidier pile. We made greater progress on the wood chip pile than I thought possible. I mowed the lawn and then packed up my car and the shed and returned wheelbarrows to the neighbors who had loaned them. Zion and I also marked off everyone’s plots.
