a delivery of 5 yards of Agromin's Premium Blend, kids and parents at Santa
Barbara Middle School went to work planting lettuce, kale, bulb fennel and
Italian parsley in brand new 2' x 8' raised redwood beds. The lettuce and kale
plants have already shot up after our recent rains.
on the agenda are tomatoes and other warm season crops. Once harvested, the
vegetables will be used in the school lunch deli, sold at their weekly farmer's
market and donated to the local food bank. Any scraps or food waste will
benefit the inhabitants of the school's worm bin, making great compost to keep
the soil fertile.
school is teaching students how to garden and the value of creating their own
food--skills we know will last a lifetime!
