Marquette Mardi Gras Volunteers Return to New Orleans

New and returning volunteers from Marquette University http://www.marquettemardigras.com/  in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, gave new life to the CSED Dauphine Street Community Garden.  They totally reworked the streetside planting bed!  These energetic students weeded, and weeded, and weeded some more, put down landscape fabric under the streetside border, mixed in compost with the existing soil, planted liriope and loropetalum, and mulched with pine straw while they gladly soaked up some glorious, New Orleans sunshine.

Marquette Mardi Gras Returns 5

They tirelessly continued to work all day.  Thanks to them the rest of the garden beds were also weeded and mulched, the brick entrance walkway was raised with another layer of bricks, and recycled, concrete pavers were added at the end of the streetside bed for further protection from vehicles.

Thank YOU Marquette Mardi Gras!!! Marquette Mardi Gras Returns 6
