Scott talked the city into give us a hand in the form of a small tractor and a driver, who spread the bark chippings and most of the soil over the plot. Unfortunately, the schedules were a bit off, and there was a truck-load of soil from Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority (HSY) the following day when the tractor wasn’t there anymore. Together we tucked in with the one wheelbarrow we had and spread the soil the best we could. It was ok, although quite slow and laborious. Naturally, the soil-free patches were the furthest away from the heaps of soil, and in the absence of proper digging spades, we used regular snow shovels. The original plan was that students and growers would construct the park together, but the students from School of Arts were in short supply.
