The day after... The palm tree has come down and has gone away. The greenhouse, staff and students are much safer and the light has changed remarkably in the areas impacted by the palm. Already we can see the plan of a refurbished green house taking effect. It's all very exciting.
'In other news,' the Garden suffered another break in last night, losing chain saws, tables, Felco pruners, a scythe and other tools to someone who thwarted the school gate to get into the Garden. Locks were cut and where that wasn't possible, a crow bar was used to pry the locked door of the tool shed open. We believe they ventured into another part of Venice High School campus and were caught on security video, but it makes us wonder why we don't have a security video camera? From a clock on the wall in my office that stopped, they were in the office at 2:41 AM. I will post a wish list asking for folks to help us recover from this loss.
