8/2/08 & 8/3/08

The Maypole Garden is planted! Friday and Saturday were scheduled garden installation with Neighborhood Youth Garden Corps, Openlands,Chicago Cares volunteers, Maypole Residents and Kidstart students. Friday was spent moving two huge mounds of mulch and soil into the garden to create the path and areas for plants. Despite the hot weather the students worked hard moving dirt with wheelbarrows, shovels, buckets and tarps. All the dirt and mulch was in the garden by mid-moring on Saturday and we were able to start planting. So far the garden looks beautiful! An Evergreen tree will be added in the Fall when the season is right to plant it.
