Starting Off Spring

Last Friday we rounded up several members of the garden leadership team and a few students from the Urban & Environmental Planning program to get down to work in the garden. Cover crops such as red clover and hairy vetch were growing abundantly. We tilled these into the soil to make it richer. Within the next week or two we’ll start planting our spring garden in these beds.

Additionally, the folks at the Farm at Red Hill were kind enough to let us use some space in their greenhouse to start some strawberry seeds growing. While we were there, they showed us around the greenhouse and chicken coup. What an inspiring place!
