A few months ago six mounds of dirt were piled high on our property. It seems someone thought our land was a suitable dumping ground. These piles became an obstacle for us, but have now been knocked down and cleaned out! It turns out the dirt is free of any toxins and worked well for filling in low spots on our property.

A group of us gathered on the tenth of July to take on the piles of dirt and clean up any debris lying around. Everyone put in their best efforts. The Garden on Marais work day was a success. The land is now free of debris and ready to be tilled and amended.

My gratitude goes to everyone who helped out with this large step towards Garden on Marais taking shape.
