Today in Garden Club, we began building our planting beds out of the chipped tree mulch that was delivered free from a local tree company. We also continued work on our new tool shed, which has blown over twice now by the strong winds on the site. This time in precaution, we held down the corners with concrete block, which should stabilize the shed and fix the issue. Finally, we hung two of our new garden signs to tell everyone what the new space in the garden is going to be and continued to make compost from this week's vegetable scraps.
Hello everyone, and welcome back to Garden Club. Since Garden Club has begun having meetings on Monday now, we thought it'd be only logical to have a blog post every Monday as well!
Today was another big showing. About 8 enthusiastic students showed up to help out today. The agenda included painting signs for the New Garden, performing garden maintenance, and cooking some fava beans to eat. Everyone had fun and great time. Thanks for all the energy and support guys. See you on Thursday!
Hi everyone and welcome back to Garden Club. Today was our biggest attendance at Garden Club yet! The New Garden is really generating a lot of interest! About 12 students came out to help mark out the pathways for the New Garden. In addition, we also hooked up our new hose, so we can now reach and water all parts of the garden.
Also this past week Mr. Berthiaume and Mr. Woolgar took all the 9th grade science classes to tour the new garden and conduct a quick lab about the soil ecosystem.
Big stuff is already happening and the garden isn't even built yet. Thanks for all your enthusiasm and participation guys. See you next week!
Today was basically just a continuation of last Thursday. Ms. Rosa joined us today in helping us with the New Garden. We continued to spread gravel for the pathways and mark out where the planting beds are going to be. Until Thursday, we'll see you then.
Hi guys. Welcome back to Garden Club. Today we continued to work on our New Garden. We moved some of the large pile of gravel onto pathways to smooth out the incline. Then, we dug a test hole to see how long it would take to dig a hole for a fruit tree (we needed to do this for a grant we are applying for). Also, David, one of our members dug a hole 2 feet wide and 18" deep in just 8 minutes! Wow! Thanks for coming today guys and we'll see you next week.
