This morning I scrolled back through the blog in search of pictures for a project. Remembering all of the things we have accomplished over the last ten years is overwhelming and encouraging. NONE of it would have happened without the generous help of volunteers.
This year I am working on building up our group of core volunteers, and we have had some amazing people step up. Danielle is a mother of four children in our district and a recent addition to our school board. She checked in with me at one of our new “Watering, Weeding, and Working Wednesdays.” I was showing her some of the deferred maintenance projects, and she lit up at the mention of our cedar legacy table. If you don’t know the background of our AMAZING table, please click here. It’s one of our best stories.
The Legacy Table: A Little Tale of Reinvesting, Rebuilding and Reinvesting
The table was in need of a little TLC. It has been a long time since we have cleaned it and treated it with rosewood oil. Danielle, along with all of her kids, brought out a sander and tools, and they restored it beautifully! She said teachers were coming out to thank her for her work on it, and when I profusely thanked her, she said she was happy to do it because her family loves our school so much. And we love them. ALL THE GOOD THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN SCHOOL GARDENS!
