Getting dirty for good. That is what the invitation said. On May 1, Peloton Projects and the Awesome Foundation teamed up to support the Farm at Walker Jones. And the amount of work accomplished was indeed awesome! Beds were turned over.
Structures were built to support our baby tomato plants.
Strange things were unearthed from the ground to be replaced with sunflowers seeds that will become the sunflower house we dreamed about.
So much work! But hard work and personal sacrifice demand rewards. So there were cupcakes and other goodies on site.
And a happy hour off-site later that afternoon where some much-appreciated fundraising for the farm took place. We were really touched by the investment this lovely group of people made in our farm, and by extension, in our students and their well-being. Many thanks for all that awesomeness!
