When a plea went out from Mandy Randolph about needing wood chips for the school garden path, Rick Markov, a former school principal who now lives on Orcas Island and volunteers for several Farm to Cafeteria events, made a call to his friend Charlie Nigretto.
A few days later, a huge pile of wood chips landed in the school garden out of the goodness of Nigretto’s heart who processed and delivered them all at his own expense.
Thank you, Charlie, for the wonderful gift to our kids and the school garden! We will think of you every time we go into the garden and walk on our beautiful paths.
