Bagels + Mulch + Sweat = A Great Work Day!

Our Back-to-School Beautification Day was a huge success.  Mountains of weeds were pulled, buckets of mulch were toted, and many bagels covered in cream cheese mysteriously disappeared.  Thanks to the 30 odd people who came out to help make our school look its best for the first day of school.  Thanks to Chantal, Lindsey, Laura, Carl, Jon, Lucy, Heather, Ben, Nova, Mateo, Kristianna, Jhono, Patty, Jenny,  Katharyn, Sean, Suzanne, Kevin, Tim and company, Ryan, TerriLynn, Violet, Estella, Matt, Shelly, Sebastian, Tina, Evelyn, Kailen, and Beniao.  I had a great time working and chatting with all of you.

And just in case you weren’t aware of how much was accomplished, take a look at the before and after photos:










Great job, Madera community!  Mark your calendars, November 7th is the next garden work day.
