In honor of Earth Day, EGG hosted a build day at our partner community, the EcoVillage Charlottesville. We currently have two project teams that have been working with the EcoVillage all year; the Playground team and the Structured Project. The Playground team has been designing improvements to last year's structure and installed those improvements this year. This involved creating a more durable captain's wheel, extending the wood flooring of the boat, securing loose side panels, and adding new wood to the roof.
The Structured Project spent the year researching and designing learning gardens for the school at the community. They decided upon a hexagonal shape to maximize garden space in the limited area they had to work with. Due to a unforeseen issue with the EcoVillage, they did not end up building the gardens for the children, but instead reduced their design to build movable garden beds for the gardening club.
Both teams were on hand finishing up their projects on Sunday, April 22nd for Earth Day. The projects went great and the weather was fantastic that day. Congratulations to both teams for successfully completing their projects!
