#1 remove broken railroad ties from walkway. These ties were hit with a tiller and have been broken and displaced. They are a safety hazard. Heavy lifting and digging involved. Ideally they will be disposed of,

#2 we have had 4 yards of gravel donated. It needs to be spread to the low areas in the parking lot and driveway. Shoveling and pushing heavy wheelbarrow.

#3 dismantle 3-6 boxes and remove soil infected with Bermuda grass. Need drills to take apart boxes, remove soil with shovel and wheelbarrow . Then repair boxes.

#4. Build shade structures on existing 4 x 4 uprights, need lattice at top.

#5. Always have weeds to clear.

Volunteers need gloves , drills and a couple of wheelbarrows would be helpful.
