Today 250 Tumwater High School students poured off of four school buses and onto the work site. These students were here to help lay 8,000 square feet of sod around the homes. Once we set them loose these kids were sod laying pros. Some moving top soil, some rolling out the dirt, others laying sod and still more pulling weeds. It was quite a sight to see and all the sod was down (and it looked good) in less then two hours.
The students also brought some flowers that were left over from the schools horticulture department and planted them in front of the houses. These pl
ants will give great splashes of color when they bloom.
This group of kids was one of the most motivated, hardworking groups I have seen in a long time. Tumwater High School deserves a huge thank you for all the staff and students that came out today to make a difference in their community. To check out pictures of today click here.
