Feeding the Plants with Amal at Juan Cabrillo

The kids LOVE watering at Juan Cabrillo! Without hesitation, they’d rather work in the garden during recess than hang on the monkey bars or run around in the soccer field. Frank and I don’t mind – we love the kids right back for their willingness to beautify their school garden! 🙂

Today we watered the plants with Amal, an organic amendment that mixes with water. After clearing a few beds, we watered those, too to prepare the soil for new seedlings. In a couple weeks we’ll see how the plants look!
