First day of community gathering

Jun. 23, 2012

Back to Project:

Our first community gathering in starting to tackle the pathway. Around 20 volunteers of all ages from the community came out on a cold rainy day. Which was really a good thing seeing it was hard work and the ground was softer for us to pull up grass roots and weeds. The weeds were even growing through the gravel on the side-walk.

There was so much over growth with blackberry bushes, tall grass and overgrown hedges that it took 2 hours just to do 10 feet of pathway. Three city blocks to go!
