Rain and Sun shelter canopy
Tube frame structure, covered with canvas tarp 10' by 10' or 10' by 20' adjacent to handicapped parking to shelter disables patients awaiting transportation in the sun or in the rain. Posts will need to be very securely anchored to the pavement and as yet unknown specifications may need to be met. They already have a larger, but similar structure in another location far from parking that meets the required specs, so I see no problem there. I am 75 years old and recently put one of these things up single handedly. crew with a bit of team-work can easily do a bang-up job of one. Suitable used frames are frequently available on craigslist.org and that is how I got mine and bolted it down to protect my tools long before finding this need for one. I can do the entire job myself, but want some scouts to get their feet wet, so to speak. (by the way, in the box below, "if" is misspelled as "it")

ADA complaint ramps
The Foundation for Senior Care provides many services to seniors and the disabled to help them live in their homes safely and to age in place with dignity . One of the requests we have is to build ramps so that a senior can get in and out safely from their home. We had a ministry of men who provided their time and expertise to building these ramps for our seniors, only charging for the cost of wood. If the senior did not have the income, which is usually about $350 - $450, for the ramp, the Foundation would try to obtain a benefactor. The builder who understands how to build the ramps to ADA code, is now a snow bird, but he would me more than happy to consult with anyone interested in building the ramps for our seniors.

The kiosk, that is needed by next September, will be for Phase 3, an ethnobotany garden. The contents will be plants and history of the Kumeyaay Peoples who once traveled in our area.

Clay Elementary Mobile Garden
With all the new regulations going into kids and school, we are hoping to extend our small school garden with 3-4 garden boxes that are on casters (wheels). These garden boxes will provide the opportunity to move to different parts of the campus during lunch time or outdoor events, can be reserved by different grade levels to use during science or special classroom activities, and can allow us to extend our garden space (which is very small and tucked in the back corner of our campus) to keep students at a safe distance apart while still being able to work outdoors in nature. Being a title 1 school, most of our students live in apartments and school is the only opportunity they have to grow their own food. We do not have funding for this project, but want it to happen so badly that we could try and help fund the project.
