*   Some plantings
*  Weeding morning glories and tackling blackberry bush
*  Cutting down tall grass with kamas
*  Place rocks (the size of two fists or bigger) to make the paths more defined? -  Volunteers to collect /donate rocks beforehand would be much appreciated. Call Linda at (250) 380-6383.
