The Wildwood Outdoor Classroom
Community "Barn-Raising"
Part 2: Support for the Workers

In an old-fashioned barn-raising, the men who put up the barn itself are not the only ones who work hard.  The whole community turns out to feed, support and encourage the workers.  So, too, at Pathways' "barn-raising" the community gathered to support those raising the roof.

Food and Drink for the Workers

The workers chow down.   Music to raise the roof by.
 But the work wasn't finished yet.  Check out part 3: Finishing the Roof.
