For the Garden Action Day we need folks to come out ready to get their hands in the dirt. We will be installing a new garden feature that involves an aquatic garden that demonstrates the symbiotic nature of fish and water plants in a mini ecosystem. The fishpond will be surrounded by half oak barrel planters that will help insulate the water and reduce evaporation. We will be primarily setting up this feature, weeding and adding compost to the existing garden beds, and priming and painting 4x8 sheets of plywood as mural panels for the East wall. At a later date the barrels will be planted with dwarf apple trees and medicinal herbs with the children. The medicinal herbs will be the ones featured in Herb Fairies, a method for teaching the uses of medicinal plants to children involving stories, recipes, and journal entries. Also the whole thing – oak barrels, plants, fish, fishpond, mural panels, etc is designed to be able to move with the school to its new site. Thanks for your support. If you have any questions please call or email Annapurna at – 707-616-6868 firstname.lastname@example.org.
