Just a little garden restoration
Every year we get the whole Berkeley crew out of the office to do some 2080 work. This year, we went back to our friends at Alameda Point Collaborative to help expand their Growing Youth Farm (which we helped renovate last year)—a one-acre urban farm that grows produce for consumption to the residents of the local community.

Pretty cool.

So what exactly did we do from 9-4?

We built some trellises.

We built a giant compost bin.

CG389

We cleared a few hefty tree stumps.

CG159

We did quite a bit of weeding, soil amending and planting.

CG268

CG496

And, we constructed a giant aquaculture pond.

100 Clifsters. Over 7 hours of work each. That's a lot of shoveling, digging, planting, and hammering. By the end of the day, we were definitely glowing.
