It takes a village to make a fence...
Too many fences too few trees led to the idea of having each fourth grader designing one picket to make a fence.
Their teachers--Joanie, Nancy, Elissa, and Dolores--led the work. (With some false starts by Barbara...lettering should be read from top to bottom...limit the number of words...)
Sen and Matt built the frame and cut and painted the pickets made from a recycled lattice screen.
Johanna gathered the materials.
She helped fourth graders amend the tree pits and plant in them.
Sen put the pickets up.
Dave and Mazda added compost to the tree pits.
The beginning of a new tradition?
We have three more unprotected trees!
It takes a village.
