IMG_8138.JPGToday was the final round of clearing the field at our Parr Field Garden Project.  We want the field to look nice since it is school property and the site is used by the public.  Hopefully there will not be too many people that let their dogs run around in this area and make messes for our land preparation again in the Spring.
