The day was perfect for the project.  It was overcast and cool, but it felt good once you got started moving dirt.  After signing up, we had a light breakfast and orientation and then took to our wheelbarrows.  We assembled into project build teams Out of approximately 100 volunteers, more than 20 were burners and we accounted for build leads for 8 of the 17 build teams.  We built gardens for 14 families, 2 Senior Living facilities, and 1 community center with a total of 31 raised garden beds.  That required us to move a total of nearly 78,000 lbs. of soil by hand, with over 15,000 of it by burners gifting their time to better their community in the spirit of the 10 principles.

Here’s a Personal thank you from the director of the Tilth Spring Into Bed Program:  Thank you Burners Without Borders Seattle, it’s really kind of you to put in so much money and effort on our behalf. After last build I realized we need to procure more of our own tools because we spend a ton of time and effort borrowing from a bunch of different programs. So the funds we receive will go to good use.

It never ceases to amaze me how awesome the burner community in the way they support our projects in many ways.  Thank all of you for that.
