Ukraine – Day 2

Today we drove down to Candlelight Ranch in Marble Falls. Candlelight ranch primarily serves special needs and at risk youth, as well as their families. Our first task was to do some maintenance on their garden. They had planted different types of edibles greens and native flowers, but it had become somewhat overgrown. We put a layer of fertilizer and mulch over the existing soil and picked out the weeds. Next, we worked on a stairway that had been eroded by horses they recently led down it. It was caked with mud, so our task was to uncover the rocks again and put mulch around the sides to prevent further erosion. We are going back tomorrow, so we’ll see what work they have in store for us then.
