Judith Wood, PNA's Director of Volunteer Programs, just sent me this:
"We had a great work party out in Heart of Phinney Park last Saturday. The weather cooperated and more than 30 volunteers turned out for a major garden make-over. After 10 years, it was time to shift some things around, replace plants lost to frost, trampling, or drunk drivers, and generally spruce things up a bit. We dug, we weeded, we planted and divided, and spread six yards of mulch. It was a great effort by neighbors, UW students, and members of both the PNA and Mars Hill Church, who generously underwrote the cost of mulch and new plants. Organizers George Suriya and Travis Boyd even hosted a fantastic barbecue lunch under the tower for all of us."
