Work Day #1

Our first work day came with much anticipation, as all the planning finally came through fruition and we were able to start building things on the site.  Because the soil on the site is not very fertile and previously had a trailor on it, we chose to build a series of raised beds so that we could amend the soil.  We bought environmentally friendly wood from a local Charlottesville vendor that would not leech any chemicals.

Even though it was raining, we managed to gather a group of students that were interested in building UVa’s Community Garden.
