Putting a call out to the West Seattle Community!
Ten yards of gravel was delivered to Nickelsville today! If you have some time to spare, they could probably use some help moving it.
The gravel will be thickly spread about the common areas, paths between tents, etc. in order to provide drainage and keep folks out of the mud that forms when it rains. This will make it cleaner and safer for the residents.
They only have one wheelbarrow on site and a few shovels. If you have some time to spare and can bring some of these items with you, please consider heading down to help.October 18, 2011 at 11:46 pm #737506
Remember folks – it stays light until at least 6:30. They have 28,000 pounds of gravel to move, but with some team work, it is not as much as it sounds :)
Free during the day? Wednesday is supposed to be nice, and then the rain returns. Wet gravel is a lot heavier than dry gravel :)

Thanks TL. Is there somen that could deliver and p/u? Residents don’t have vehicles.October 19, 2011 at 2:45 am #737509
they got a second wheelbarrow and rake and shovel today.
with those they moved 5 yards of bark dust to fill the ruts in the pathways all the way to the back of the second neighborhood and to create a landing area at the base of the main stairway.
tomorrow they will start covering all of that with gravel.
they could really use some help.
i think Kevin estimated the current gravel delivery at 90 wheelbarrow loads.
while that sounds like a lot…
it is likely that it will eventually take another load or two to create safe common areas and pathwaysOctober 19, 2011 at 4:07 am #737510October 19, 2011 at 4:52 am #737511
Good job!! Should be good by Saturday lunch. Not that I’ve been worried about a little mud. Should be much better for everybody else there.October 19, 2011 at 4:39 pm #737512
Beautiful day out! If you can spare a little time, muscle and positive energy, please stop by NV to move some gravel. If one bucket full will help!October 19, 2011 at 5:49 pm #737513
The Tool Library has sent out a call over our facebook and twitter accounts for volunteers to head down to Nickelsville.
Unfortunately, it looks like we’re stretched a little thin today on having someone to transport the tools. (We aren’t officially open on Wednesdays.)
If someone would like to arrange to pickup the tools and bring them down there, though, we could see if any of our own volunteers were available to at least run over to Youngstown and open the Library up for ya.
Thanks!October 19, 2011 at 6:00 pm #737514October 19, 2011 at 8:47 pm #737515

Big thank you to Mike The Wheelbarrow Man for donating a …wheelbarrow!October 20, 2011 at 4:15 am #737517
I was out of Camp most of the day, but came back to see one of the piles out front pretty much exhausted, and that gravel living in it’s new home inside Camp!
Thanks again to everyone!
