Let's Do Mulch: Landscaping Day!

Great news! The upcoming mulch day is..... Saturday, November 7th! 

And to top it off (pun not intended, but I'll rake it in), Ecology Action has recognized our facility as a candidate to be a Monterey Bay Friendly Landscape. This is a high honor in the community to be recognized in this way. Not only are we leading by example but we are also showing the community that we are good stewards of the Earth.

We will be moving mulch in assembly-line fashion to the front of the church- facing Mission Street. This will allow us to trap as much El NIno rain and help restore our shrinking water tables.

When to arrive? 9 am

Where will we meet? The church Front Office (the door next to the Abbey closest to the street). We will take 30 minutes to enjoy some freshly brewed Abbey coffee, enjoy some light refreshments, meet each other, and say a quick prayer.

What to bring? If you have them: gardening gloves, shovels, a wheelbarrow, brooms. Please wear appropriate "yard work" clothing and shoes.

When will we start? Around 9:30 am 

What will I be doing? The Crew will subdivide into 3 Groups: 

                                  Group 1: Shovel in (shoveling mulch from Point A into wheelbarrows)
                                  Group 2: Wheel out (running wheelbarrow loads out to the front)
                                  Group 3: Shovel out (shoveling mulch from wheelbarrow drops onto the landscape)

When will we be done? ASAP- your time is valuable! The more hands, the faster we will go. We will conclude with a quick clean up and sweep.
