New retaining wall in the garden!

The slope next to the compost bins on the south side of the garden needed a retaining wall! Tommy Mozingo took this on as an Eagle Scout project.

The Whidbey Island Garden Tour provided funding for the masonry blocks, and Tommy organized all the details of getting it done.

First the edge was shaped and the ground leveled.

The masonry stone was laid and leveled again and the chain gang started!

Higher and higher, until… it’s done!

A big thank you to Tommy, and the other hard working members of Boy Scout Troop 57: Max Corell, Will Holbert, Ryan McCreary, Evan Melish, Brent Piehler, Locklan Roberts, and Steven Smith.
