November 2009: Work Day!

Thank you for everyone who came out to the 2nd work day of the year on Saturday! As usual, we got a lot of things done, including planting 15+ fruit trees! We now have plums, pear, and peach trees added to our fruit orchard. We also laid down some fresh hay, planted 6 more rosemary bushes around our Reading Circle, planted 6 new herb beds for the Herb Project, started a new compost pile, planted tons of new flower and veggie plugs, and started 2 new beds ready for planting! I'm always amazed by the power people can have when they get together to work towards a good cause! Thank you!

A big THANK YOU to RootDownLA for feeding the hungry volunteers! They served a great white bean pasta salad. It definitely has me reconsidering white beans. I love them and want them in everything now!


Stayed tuned for our next workday coming up in December!
