Get Involved Today at the Downtown Teaching Farm
There are two ways to get involved with this teaching farm today, Monday the 6th of June.
If you are a BHS student and would like to take on a leadership role (watering, harvesting, event planning, community garden coordinator) then you should meet at the farm at 4:30 today to discuss the responsibilities and do a walk through.
If you are a community member, all are invited to the 2nd "Farm Family" class - tonight at 6 pm. These classes are designed to bring community gardeners together and teach gardening concepts or "themes" to a variety of age groups. Tonight's topic is Irrigation and Mulch. We will do hands on activities with some different types of mulching that are appropriate for different types of watering. There is also an mulch-art project for the young kids. Then, we will plant up a couple of rows of tomatoes and some rows and teepee's of heirloom beans! Also, we will try to finish planting the Pizza Garden - does anyone have any wheat seed they can bring? Come one and all - from 6-8 pm.
