Last weekend’s Greenbelt work party was our biggest ever. Thirty-four people participated. That included 4 GreenFriends members, 4 neighbors, 22 students from the University of Washington’s Introduction to Environmental Science class, 4 friends and a Forest Steward.
Our goal for this work party was to finish preparing the land for the 35+ trees that we are going to plant on October 22. We created a bucket brigade and then carried 10 cubic yards of wood chips from 25th Avenue S into the Greenbelt and dumped them in piles around the site,
We also removed blackberry root balls that were located close to the planting areas and placed burlap around each section where a tree will be planted.
The work party may have only lasted three hours, but as you can see from the photos above and below, we have lots of memories!
And last, but not least, thanks to my neighbor Marine who took most of these photos.
