What a wonderful year, with all the help and participation in greening activities in 2017! By the numbers, this included:
40+ people helped this year with many greening project;
6 – new steps built to the outdoor chapel;
120 – native plants planted; most were salvaged from trails and brought from homes;
3 square yards – pine chips put on trails and around plants;
1.5 square yards – gravel put on steps and paths to outdoor chapel and playground;
1.5 square yards – broken BBQ bricks and cement hauled off to be recycled at Sunset Material, which kindly gave us a church discount;
40 – flowers planted in Children’s Creation Care;
100 – trash cans of leaves raked, blown, and mulched, and much used to winterizing native plants;
????? – weeds, blackberries and ivy removed;
Many – clumps of grass planted this year (much was salvaged from grass tossed at golf course);
50+ people who enjoyed nature this year participating in the outdoor chapel services, Children’s Creation Care, Wednesday Walks, three mountain hikes, and Christmas outside decorating with greens and holly; and
Many more – enjoyed other nature activities with youth projects, work projects, camp, etc.
We gratefully received a bequest from the estate of Mary Bell for $5000 towards landscaping! What a difference that will make in our work in 2018!
