The Academy of Alameda (formerly Chipman) volunteers report a successful planting day has taken place. As we see from the photos, gardeners of all ages participated, led by the professional guidance of Shirley Watts.
Shirley taught the volunteers how to transfer the plants:
The improvements are immediately noticeable.
Laying a weed barrier means an easier job for future maintenance.
The Committee wants everybody to know we will be having another work party this weekend on Saturday, May 29, from around 9-12pm to finish the planting and spread mulch. We will really need wheelbarrows and shovels.

We just got confirmation that IT'S TIME TO PLANT !!!!
Our plants are arriving this Friday at Chipman and we will be planting on Saturday, May 22, 2010 from 9-12pm.
No worries about abilities - we'll have professional help to guide the way. Any and all time is greatly appreciated and kids will continue to get community service credit.
For more information go to either the Chipman or Academy's website for updates at:
