New mulch, and new growth are happening at Avalon Gardens!
When these potatoes sprouted roots we cut them into about eight pieces. We gave the pieces a few days to crust over; this helps them be impervious to disease once in the ground. We removed a lot of soil from the planters so that when the potato begins to show its leaves, we can…
Ramona is full of some great gardeners and artist! We had fun creating art for our garden. While the little gardeners painted we talked about the great friends and foes of the garden. We focused on the importance of bees and how to be respectful when we see them in the garden. Many of us…
At South Gate Middle School, we are learning about the importance of eating healthy. The students had a great time harvesting and preparing their very own salad.

It had been 3 weeks since I had seen the garden at Bryson, so we took a garden maintenance day to make sure everything was looking fresh and healthy. There were some weeds to take care of but for the most part the garden was flourishing and looking really great! Out to check on…
Garden classes are back in session at Cheremoya Avenue Elementary. This week, Cheremoya warmly welcomed a new garden ranger, Taylor!

It is easy to help out
There are many Non-Profits out there, but not all are very effective or frugal. Our people are people who volunteer, intern and give. People who care. We have minimal staff. Our garden rangers fan out to 68 schools weekly. We respect our people by treating their time as precious. If you volunteer, we want you to be exhausted. We feel that if you are going to give up your day to help us and others then the least that we can do is make it worth your while.
