All those planting beds need to be cleared and amended.

Thankfully, at Dorsey High School, we had a few students show up for garden work on a Saturday and they did a fabulous job.

For approximately two and a half hours students weeded, removed bermuda grass, old plants, and completed some seriously needed site prep work.
