Earth Day at Joshua Farm

In honor of Earth Day, I volunteered the youth in our sustainable agriculture training program to do a service project (ah, yes, nothing like mandatory service).  Green Urban Initiative, a separate Harrisburg nonprofit I volunteer with, is planning to start a community garden at 2405 Berryhill St.   Since the current surface there is a mix of gravel and asphalt, raised beds will be necessary, and I thought the guys would have fun getting comfortable with a circular saw while helping to cut the lumber for the raised beds.  I think we got 6 of the 20 pieces of plywood cut today, but with practice, they’ll zoom through the rest!

Robert and Cameron learn the value of the old adage, "Measure once, cut twice; measure twice, cut once."
