Ready for action!

Phase One of building the edible garden is finally done! We did it! We had lots of volunteers this weekend who came to help us shovel and rake the mulch surface, add compost to the planters, finish the brick patio, add touch up paint to our shed/kitchen,  install the drip irrigation for the woolly pockets and build our very cool gateway arch.The garden is now ready for the 7th grade science classes to start planting this week. The first plantings will be done by Ms. Schwendener and Ms. Holland's classes and led by Katie Dwyer, our garden coordinator. I will tell you more about Katie in my next posts.
