New flowers, mulch, and a compost bin at El Sereno Elementary!

Today was a fun day at El Sereno Elementary! We planted a cool flowering plant called Globe Amaranth. It loves dry, hot weather, and it attracts pollinators to the garden so we have lots of yummy fruits and veggies. The flowers can also be dried and used as decorations! 20160818_141109[1]

There were lots of weeds coming up in the walkways so we covered them with cardboard, and on top of that wood chips to prevent the weeds from growing and spreading. 20160818_142716[1]

We got a brand new compost bin so we can create our own healthy soil for our garden beds! 20160818_141147[1]

This garden is ready for all the bright students at El Sereno Elementary!!!
