A group of nearly 20 high school students descended on the garden, and after getting a brief tour and introduction to the day's work, they really did dig in. The dog area was the initial focus for the group, and once everyone was settled in I started special projects teams in different areas of the garden that weeded or pruned things into shape.
We also took a small group over to the triangle garden, and did our best to clear out the grass that has quickly taken over the area. We didn't have enough time to finish the job, but the students were hard working and we made a big dent in the weeds.

|Agave gypsophylla flower|
Chris worked away in the left bed while I got into the midst of the top bed and many weeds met their fate.
|Agave salmiana (?) flower|
A couple of Agaves are flowering right now - check them out. They will flower for about 6-12 months, then die. Exciting, but also sad!
