We’re almost complete with a new edible garden at Wilshire Crest Elementary School. Redwood raised beds, fruit trees, an espalier fruit tree row, an outdoor kitchen, and a fully automated sprinkler system.
We are putting in a lot of edible gardens at schools. In this city water is precious. Edible gardens by their nature are pretty water intensive. We understand that if we do not build gardens that are water efficient, then this city’s appetite for school gardens will decrease. Thus, this garden is full drip irrigation, delivered directly to the plant’s roots.
