SPRING (what's the opposite of a) BREAK

As students from CBEMS planted the gardens they have been planning, student volunteers from Connecticut and Cleveland scaled the steaming peaks of what the kids have christened "Mt. Poop-erest."  
The 30 or so volunteers who came out for Volunteer week succeeded in preparing almost 3,000 square feet to become outdoor education space!  They also tilled the garden's field beds, weeded the raised beds, and prepared the soil in our soon to be planted blueberry orchard.
Community members came out to show their support for the volunteers.  Students prepared a campfire dinner, and local neighbors Homer and Dave played gospel as the student volunteers relaxed after a hard week's work.
