Starting at 6am, Construction crew leader David Tollas introduces the process of concrete mixing and pouring as well as safety considerations. After the concrete is mixed in a batch plant on site, the concrete truck takes the load to the ramp site. Construction and landscaping crewmembers, with the help of interns , workshop participants and volunteers, transport the wheelbarrows.
