The self watering south facing Hugel has a solitary pumpkin vine growing across the mound. Cant wait to harvest its only pumpkin soon. Not too far out purple asparagus grows well, but gets eaten before it can make it too far.


The two Cal State volunteers did a perfect job of readying planting beds for the students to plant fall and winter veggies.

Tahereh likes to hike, bike, quilt, cook and most of all garden. She has been a garden ranger with EnrichLa since January 2015. She teaches middle school children, many of whom have special needs which has necessitated a slow, mindful approach to place based garden education. Improving soil, making compost, harvesting water, growing natives and ancient grains and journal writing, is what she enjoys doing most with the children.
