  • ‘Seeking child labor!’ 😉
    Ok. Just joking. I assume the program is generally seeking adults for the help. Right?

    • … Youngish adults with strengthen and energy…

    • We’ve had kids (with their adults) help on trail days; heck, we’ve had Gracie the rescue dog pitch in. Not sure how good kids would be at shoveling crushed rock or handling a wheelbarrow, but they’re more than welcome to try. 😀

  • Rock On people!

  • Local Skeptic Thru Observation

    The dirty thirty know no bounds. They rule Arcata with an iron fist.

    Child labor is not just encouraged, but required.


    (WE ARE COMPLETELY ANTI-CANNABIS!! – but now that we can take a substantial cut, go ahead and smoke/buy/sell/grow weed as much as you want/can, while we rush to usher in the new, now-OK permitted millionaires (i.e. “US”) while the rest of you will no longer be able to afford your meds and will be blocked from growing your own ONE PLANT so we can make BILLIONS of dollars per year on your pain and suffering, because WE SAID IT WAS NOW OK TO DO SO.)

    Hypocrisy at its finest.
