New Eastlake P-Patch work party videos

Eastlake P-Patch Expansion project volunteer Peter Streit has posted three videos showing a crack detail of elite P-Patch volunteers hard at work. They take a brief repite from their arduous tasks to answer some of Pete’s questions regarding the intricacies of such an involved project.

Mike Naylor and Claudia Dreiling discuss the delicate art of concrete cap-building with their assistant Nancy…

Tom Naylor shows us the new handicap accessible raised beds he is building…

… and expansion project designer Lisa Hummel demonstrates some precision installation of the new granite garden plots.

Earlier this month, the Eastlake Ave. Blog posted a link to a tour of the entire site, which outlines the ongoing project as a whole.

Work on the P-Patch continues through the spring, every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm at 2900 Fairview Ave E , so grab your work gloves and come work toward obtaining your very own garden plot.
