We completed clearing the garbage today (props to Isaac and Kristen for doing most of it) and we formed all of the dumped leaves into a "L" shaped compost heap. We also planted some bulbs and created a make-shift bench out of old boards and broken chairs. Isaac had a cool idea of making a large chess board and using all of the empty detergent bottles as chess pieces, so that will be our next endeavor. The trash was a huge bummer, but it has also provided us with some decent materials to work with. I think we are adapting and responding to it well.
