wildlands restoration volunteers

Eric and I volunteered with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers this past weekend. WRV is an incredibly organized, community oriented group that repairs trails, builds new trails, and restores native vegetation in public lands.

The group worked on building a new multi-use trail near Brainard Lake. While Eric did trail work, I cooked up a storm with the Project Support Cook team. We fed 75 people for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 1 dinner. I sauteed the pile of peppers and onions shown above for burritos. They were quickly gobbled up by the hungry, hard-working volunteers!

Cooking for large amounts of people is a fascinating challenge of planning and execution. I am looking forward to future opportunities!

    WRV has a really great lineup of projects for the 2010 season. Hope to see you out there some more!
