Providing TLC to the school's namesake Desert Garden

I talked to the principal and they seem to have their daily maintenance under control.  What needs some TLC is their namesake Desert Garden, a 20'x20' garden on campus that used to have defined paths, etc.  It's over grown and the volunteer that started and maintained it is no longer able to do it.  We will be taking care of this so if volunteers could bring the following that would help:
A few hand trimmers and one larger one (I don't quite know the size of things)
A few plastic yard trash bags
A few rakes and shovels

Thank you.  Roger Theis
