As I mentioned in my last post, I wanted to show you the before and after pictures from last weekend when I participated in the West Seattle Community Orchard class. Unfortunately I wasn't able to go to the work party after the class where everyone did the sheet mulching (aka "work"), so I was just as excited to see the after picture as all of you (second picture above). I drove over to South Seattle Community College today to get the picture. As you can tell, there is still a lot of work to do turning this grassy space into an orchard but I can see it beginning to take hold! Each month there will be more work parties and I'll share the progress. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
