arbor day

a few girl scouts joined other volunteers to help our community gardeners clear invasive growth to make way for native trees. ander was off school so he got to join us. is is already a master builder (of LEGO); now he wants to be a master gardener.

stirring the mulch and smelling it for freshness

practicing with a small twig

tending to tiny growth

looking forward to trying out a saw
bare roots of invasive species need to be trimmed off before disposal

much of the time was spent as a runner - getting the branches to a disposal area

sometimes you need a little help from a friend

dude knows what he's doing

a spruce awaiting its new home
