Photos of Naturist Legacy's early success
32. Naturist Legacy Park's front yard receives a needed makeover
Miller's Trucking of Winnipeg
the company that delivered the beach sand for Naturist Legacy
Park's volleyball court, brought a huge bulldozer to push, level and pack
it. Seeing this unexpectedly large machine on site gave me an idea. The
park's "front yard" near the main highway contained several large mounds
consisting of soil, composted manure and other debris left over from when
the land was farmed. I inquired about how much extra it would cost to clear
those piles for us. Because the bulldozer was already on site for the beach
sand project, the fee requested by the machine's owner for this additional
work was very reasonable. We accepted his offer and asked him to proceed.
Not only did he break apart the unsightly piles and push them into the
bush, he also used the heavy ripper attached to the back of his bulldozer
to grub out several boulders and large stumps. The appearance of the park's
front yard was instantly transformed! It took many days of volunteer labour
to collect all the unearthed debris and to smooth out the roughly-scraped
ground. I was genuinely surprised and delighted to see how quickly thick
grass re-established itself in this compost-rich soil (the last three pictures
below were taken just two and a half months later).
These photographs from my personal collection were taken in July and
September 2012. Please contact me if you'd
