How to build a playground in one day?

We did it!!!!

I'm so thrilled to share the result of everyone's hard work. We had an amazing day! Starting with coffee and donuts, our team captains quickly organized groups of volunteers and we were underway by 9 am. Family, friends, parents and neighbors all pitched in to transform the back yard into an awesome natural playscape. An incredible day.

Hooray! By 4pm we stopped work and stepped back to admire all that had been accomplished! Here we all are cutting a ribbon with volunteers and village Trustee Bee Keck. The ribbon was pieced together with pictures of garden and playground visions the children made.

Ribbon Cutting

I want to send a huge THANK YOU to all who made this happen. From the volunteers who did the digging and building; to the many local businesses who contributed building materials and supplies in advance; to my team captains for designing and constructing their part of the playscape and my awesome neighbors who brought food and cookies to share!

Your donations of time, materials, money and love made our Garden Grow!

Margaret Mead once said "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, its the only thing that ever has."

Stay tuned for more pics in the coming weeks.
