Protecting the soil at Hollenbeck Middle School

Although it was a rainy day last week, students at Hollenbeck were anxious to work in the garden! So, in between the downpours, we planted a mossy ground cover in pathways between our vegetable crops.  The moss will keep our garden green and allow us to walk a next to the plants while harvesting without compacting the soil.
