Miguel Contreras – Irrigation Install

Hello Garden Friends!
This Tuesday at the Academic Learning Center we updated our sprinkler system to a new and improved drip system! In the picture above you can see the amended beds draped in a three line drip system. Today was especially nice because Rangers Felipe and Nick were able to come and help me work along side the students. A few of the higher functioning children were able to help us cut the drip lines and connect together out T and L joints. Most of the help was needed clearing brush and spreading cow manure over the freshly tilled soil. Below you can see a picture of Felipe teaching a student to transplant with a dragonfruit cactus.
