3) Mulch distribution around shrub + plant beds 

4) Removal / replacement of 4 inches of gravelly soil over a 200 sq. ft area and replacement with good quality topsoil.

5) Weeding

6) Trimming

7) Shrub removal in back playground

There’s sometimes breakfast tacos. There’s not really ever any steak & eggs – but we sure wish there were. Please email me if you can volunteer or if you need any further/additional information.

Thanks so much!.
