It's time for us to put away our shovels for a job well done. Over 40 volunteers have been involved in this project in some way or another and I am grateful for each and every one of them. From the moment I said, "Hey the boys and I have a good idea..." No one ran away (though they may have wished they had.) There were so many people that supported us, helped us grow and make our project better. There were ideas that I never would have considered that ended up in our final garden and made it so much better than if we had done this project alone. Our children worked so hard measuring, calculating angles of hillside, testing the soil, sorting plants I am so proud of all of them. It is amazing to see what they have been able to accomplish in just a few short months. After all the holes have been dug and flowers planted I am so glad there were so many hands to help us. I am especially grateful for all the hands who helped dig, whether it was holes for plants or pipes, I hope you think in the end that the blisters were worth it. Thanks you for driving five hours to help us Lori, Jacob, Michael and dad!
I know that all of the animals around the church will be grateful from the humans who stop to watch the butterflies enjoying the milkweed, to the bugs who will have a new home to visit for years to come. We have added more than just a garden to stop erosion, we have actually made a habitat come to life. GOOD WORK PEOPLE- and thank you from the bottom of my dirt loving heart!
