The Ripper Visits The Garden

To All:
As previously promised, you can now see "The Ripper" in action.  Yesterday, it came to the
the CASA Community Garden and "man oh man", what a machine! 
Because of this year's drainage and soil compaction problems in our newly established garden, we
had to address these issues (in a serious manner) before next spring. 
If you go to my "Garden News" page...  http://www.casagarden.com/news.htm
you can read a little about this event.  There is a link to see pictures of our Public Works Dept
 installing drainage lines and there is also a link to view "The Ripper" as well. 
Below that, is some verbiage with a link you can right click on to download an actual MPEG movie (33 seconds)
 of this machine in action. If you have a high-speed connection, it will take a minute or so to download.
After downloading, you can view this short movie using Windows Media Player (oh yeah, turn on those speakers).
After viewing, you may want to delete it off of your hard drive (8 megs).
Hope you enjoy,
                         Jim Call, CASA Community Garden Volunteer Director
                         Recent Graduate of Tim Taylor's School of Horticulture
