Our mission today was to plant a vegetable garden for the children at the SACRO Drop-in-Centre. With a quick stop at the local garden nursery we gathered the spinach, peppers, lettuce and cabbage seedlings. Once at the Drop-in-Centre Mirella, Chris, Bob and I set to work on clearing and tilling the earth. In contrast to previous days this one found us with tools in excess. Within a few hours we had created a beautiful 15 x 30 veggie garden.
With some time to spare in the afternoon we made an impromptu visit to one of the local pre-schools that Rob and Gillian had visited earlier in the day. The children were just beginning to eat lunch and our arrival seemingly halted all thoughts of eating. Each of us found our place and the children found our laps. And our hearts. We had such a wonderful time that we're going back with the rest of the crew on Friday.
