Bizarre Process, Amazing Results: Workday 7.20.13

Here are pictures of our July workday in progress.

The problem: unsightly urban debris and invasive  plants:


The Solution: Sheet Mulching

First we put down newspaper:  Workday.July1

Then we watered generously:Workday.July.water

Then we put down cardboard and watered again:Workday.July.2

Finally step: apply mulch (generously provided by the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Department) and voila! Nature!!Workday.July3Stay tuned for the spring planting of native plant material.

Many thanks to our large crew of volunteers!!

Reminder: There will be no workday in August. Our next workday is September 21st.
