Little did we know, when we first dug into the Canillas Community Garden back in 2009, that the site had been a “bottle dump” in the late 1800s. The soil was filled with glass and pottery shards, medicine bottles, old farming implements and other rubbish. (No plastic!) The pottery and glass sparked our imaginations: what might we create with all these shards? This past summer, seven years later, when the basin of the bird bath had deteriorated and red algae contaminated the water, we knew what needed to be done. . . mosaic! A fun project for Polly and Pat!
