Over 75 volunteers brought their A-game to the parking lot of the Escuela Viva Community School on a lovely, cool August morning. This depaving transformed nearly half of the 10,000 square foot lot into a soft surface playground complete with native plantings, several different learning gardens, and a great big bioswale that will absorb all of the rain water that falls on the site. Many thanks to the parents and teachers at Escuela Viva for their help in the project! In addition, thanks to these business for their donations in support of the project: Magnolia Manor, Bizon Nursery, J Frank Schmidt Trees, Stone NW, Pro Gro Mixes, Ewing Irrigation, & Wayne Gulbranson Irrigation Design.
