Community work day moves mountain of mulch

I couldn't be more proud of the American Family community gardeners.

In early April, 25 new and current gardeners showed up to move piles of wood mulch and compost to make room for the expansion. In early May, more than 30 people showed up to lay down cardboard and spread 30 cubic yards of wood mulch throughout the garden paths and orchard. And we did it in under an hour.

That's cardboard laid down and a cubic yard of mulch loaded, moved, unloaded and spread every two minutes!

Our secret? You're going to have to watch the video to see how we did it!

HINT: it warms the heart of this guy who was raised on a farm!

Nice job gardeners. Nice job indeed.
