This week Conserve School received a request from the Land O’ Lakes Public Library for help with spring cleaning of the library’s gardens and lawns. I invited students to volunteer and was pleased to note that more than the eight that were needed signed up. Eight of those who signed up were selected at random and they biked the seven miles from the Lowenwood Recreation Center at Conserve School to the Land O’ Lakes Library with me this morning.
Before beginning our work at the library I treated the students to brunch at the Pine Cone Cafe, one of my favorite eating spots in Land O’ Lakes. Once we arrived at the library we were met by Bob Beedie, a Land O’ Lakes summer resident who has adopted the library grounds and who has done much of the planning and work that has made them so beautiful. Bob quickly put us to work dethatching the grass, spreading mulch, trimming rose bushes and raking the lawns. Not only will this make the library look good, it will prepare the lawn for a summer season of presentations for children.
After we finished our work at the library I treated the students to treats at the Dari-Maid Drive-In ice cream stand.
Please enjoy these photos from the day.
