"A 60 minute makeover" by the Gardening Group!

Yesterday during its regular Sunday evening gardening acitivities, the Gardening Group moved to the area between Manzanas 19 & 20.

These notes are based on information supplied by Alan Buck, who also sent me the photographs.

I paraphrase what Alan writes about his 'before/after' photographs:




Alan's notes on yesterday evening's
60 MINUTE MAKEOVER
by the Gardening Group

The reason for the heading is because I was astonished what had been achieved in just one hour. I thought that when I took the first photos that they would only get the land cleared, but heyho when I retuned to take some more pics I was surprised to see how much had been done in such a short space of time on a very hot evening. All those who helped should be heartily congratulated for their hard work.

Fortunately Huma had previously 'scraped' the area between Manzanas 19 & 20 and many of the larger weeds had been removed, so this made it a little easier to clear than the previous area worked on. The work started at the top end of the area, where the old originally planned stream was going to be but now filled in. You will see from the pics this is near the roundabout behind the restaurant. It is I believe the intention that both edges of this strip of land, nearest the bungalows on each side, will also be tidied and planted.

The first six pics below were taken during my first visit to the site yesterday evening, whereas the final four were taken when I returned about an hour later to see what had been accomplished. It was then that my astonishment was complete. Enjoy the photographs!
