Volunteers Part 1

Congregation Kol Emeth
February 13, 2011

Rabbi Laurie Matzkin the Director of Lifelong Learning for Congregation Kol Emeth in Palo Alto came out to Haven Family House with a group of teens for their all-teen service learning day on Sunday February 13th.

They bought and planted some very lovely flower
 in the front garden. They look so beautiful
when you drive up to the site.

Once they were done planting the flowers the hard work
begun. Pulling weeds where a new pathway to the south
garden vegetable tables will be put in.

Great work team!

Thank you Rabbi Laurie and Team!
I really enjoyed working with you.

Stanford GSB
March 5 2011 

We had 15 students from the Stanford GSB help me in the garden for Volunteer Service Day

They cleaned out some old wood fiber mulch so we could add in some wood chips donated by Lyngso.

Cutting back  the weeds the garden was another big chore.

Pulling weeds so we could put n some weed cloth
and wood chips

YES! Power Tools!

Wood chip going in.

More weeding!

While the Stanford GSB were working hard in the garden a
few "local" residents helped me weed the raised beds...

...and plant some lettuce

Path to the south garden

More wood chips.

Making room.
Looks like fun!


Thank you Stanford GSB and Lyngso
