Just in time. Finished today to welcome the youngsters tomorrow! Phase 1. Thomas Starr King Middle School central green project. Principal Mark Naulls and www.enrichla.org stretched a bucket of money to THE LIMIT to create a central park that feels like a college campus. On a shoestring, this summer we added water stingy sprinklers, St Augustine Grass, a second Habitat garden ( inspired by the UN nature report) and pathways. This is sustainable. This middle school feels pastoral. I will not let this wither. We finally brought attention to the cob bench built by David Egeler, a former teacher and we get to remind students about the UN report. We added posts and chains to limit walking to the paths ( grass is for lounging) and we added drip to EVERY tree and shrub.
