Confirmed attending: Ann C, Monica, Christy

maintenance

  • It’s very difficult to keep the area east of the horse (roughly) open and mowed. Also, around the berry bushes and the east side compost bins is difficult. I’m wondering whether some planning, then clearing, could define those areas more clearly.
  • It’s also difficult to know what is weed and what belongs when mowing near the fruit trees, so it occurred to me that we could ask individual gardeners to adopt a fruit tree (or even require it as a condition leasing!). Najwa could be in charge, and direct the work rather than be overwhelmed by it.
  • And last, the school has apparently passed on to us the care of the sidewalk terrace in front of the gates. I whacked it (not hard to do), but I sense a straw in the wind as running the school mower to the end of school property is virtually effortless.
