So our willow fence project was a no-go last weekend at the Panhandle workday, because not all of the necessary materials were ready. And it appears that it won't be until next year that the fence project can be initiated.
Anyway, the crew of volunteers last Saturday ready was ready to help out with a few projects including raking in the playground and trimming shrubs. The largest number of volunteers was busy planting a large number of new plants into the mound, an area next to the restroom that has been converted from grass to native perennial shrubs.
We also took time to admire a bit of new construction: a low retaining wall built with heavy lumber to surround a small patch of tree ferns and other plants that welcome families to the main gate of the children's playground.
