This continues the report from 2/16/07. Now that the wall panels are in place, attention is focused on the path around the new wall. This years first workshop gets a good taste of hearty digging.
The old path pavers are picked up. The earth at the east and north side of the wall is dug down to be even with the retaining wall. Dirt is re-distributed to bring other parts of the path up to the same level.
A lot of digging happens at the north side, to establish easier access for handicapped visitors and general deliveries.
Workshop participant Matt works on, and fixes!! the compactor.
A form is completed for an addition to the existing retaining wall at the east side and the concrete mixer is fired up for the first concrete pour for this workshop. This story will continue on 2/28/07.
