The students at Frank Del Olmo Elementary were super excited to get back into this garden! Over the summer their corn and sunflower friends reached new heights, and the mint has taken on a life of it’s own. The kids helped weed and trim, and we put on a little play acting out the different types of dirt with guest stars, water and air.
We have tons of stuff growing, ready to harvest – tomatoes, green onion, and Japanese eggplant to name a few.
Thanks to the generous help of fellow Ranger Olivia McCallum we tackled the composting situation and built a self composting box out of the corn and sunflower stalks that we trimmed.
Trimmed and weeded, ready for new planting!
