Weed-whacking party

Here's how Vince described our accomplishments:

"We spent the afternoon cutting weeds and brush and carrying out garbage yesterday. Amazing what you can get done with a bunch of people. Cynthia's mom & eight other friends came over to work. We made three compost bins and one big pile of brush that
needs chipping. Nearly filled a 6 yard trailer with junk."

So here's a heartfelt thank you to Susan, Rob, Ryan, Ian, Babs, Camille, Walter, Rosie, and Judith! Most of the crew is shown below with New York State Assemblyman Sam Hoyt (second from right), who inherited a sense of smell so powerful that he is able to sniff out photo ops from ten miles away. Just kidding--we invited him.

    Tell you what compost is one of the most important aspects of maintaining the environment. It benefits both the area around you and your gardening capabilities.
