Beautifying 6th Ave Elementary

Today was mostly a garden maintenance day for Ranger Hope at 6th Ave Elementary. In between introducing all her classes to the garden, she planted marigolds, installed a trellis for beans, made signs and amended some areas of the garden with bagged compost.

We’re incredibly lucky enough to have two established tomato plants at this garden already! Super looking forward to eating fresh cherry tomatoes in a few weeks!
