RCS Garden Shed Begins to Take Shape!

St. Croix Valley ALC along with employees of RCS

While not quite complete, the RCS Giving Garden shed took shape today!  The St. Croix Valley ALC joined us in the garden for the shed building project.  We had used doors, windows and lumber donated to the construction of this garden addition. 
 
Students were divided into three groups.  Mary Gilbertson worked with a student crew on installing wall studs.  Ben Kreye instructed students on rafters and installing the old doors onto the exterior.  Mike Lubarski's student crew worked on laying out and securing the floor joists. 

The shed is ready for one last door, siding, the roof and subfloor to be completed sometime this next week.  The photo video below shows some of the student having a hands on experience in shed building 101. 

Not only will this shed be home to our well used garden gloves and tools, but will also be a place to start seedlings in the coming years!
