we had about 16 students help to build a new garden bed and some trellises for our peas.
Everyone wanted to get a chance to use the hand saw and the power drill. By the end the cuts were pretty straight!
Here Fatima is measuring out a cut.
The pea trellises came out beautifully, thanks to Tomi Kobara, a neighbor of the school and a landscape architect who donated some of her time to help out!
Here Sosina and Tati are setting the middle support board for the garden bed.
By the end of the day, all the boys had left and seven dedicated young woman stayed to finish the garden bed and clean up. They were proud of their work and excited to build the next one! We had some debate about where it should go, we need more sunny spots was the end conclusion. We hope to plant into this garden bed by the middle of January.
