On Saturday, a group of volunteers spent a sunny morning in Cotati working on a project for Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County. Carl Servais of TLCD Architecture organized the group through the local AIA Redwood Empire chapter and in partnership with the Leadership Santa Rosa Alumni Association. The group of 10 volunteers spent the day hauling base rock and constructing a base for a keystone retaining wall. The labor was tough and by the end of the day the completed work wasn’t much to look at. However, with the level base and the first course now complete, future volunteer crews will be able to rely on that sturdy and true base to quickly assemble the remainder of the 6 foot retaining wall.
Kudos to this group of volunteers, who ended the day wondering when they can come back again to participate in this worthy endeavor!
