Last Thursday was my first official day volunteering with EnrichLA. I met up with my fellow volunteers at TS King Middle school, EnrichLA’s first school garden. I pass this school quite often but it was my first time getting to explore, and the garden – wild though it may be now – was lovely!
We spent the afternoon weeding Bermuda grass and other pests out of the beds, and replacing pavers along the edges. Alexys was able to fix some gnarly leaks in the irrigation, and started putting in tags for the different goodies growing around.
Next up will be finishing up the weeding, setting down new mulch, and adding new seedlings. See you soon, TS King!
