What was once support for summer tomatoes to grow is now going to be used to have winter peas climb



Trying out a different design to have the plants planted in rows on a mound rather than all the soil be on the same flat level.

Michelle Moore has been a Garden Ranger since the start of the 2014 school year. She is passionate about community development and sustainability. Michelle studied Recreation and Tourism Management at CSUN and got her start in the garden world at M.E.N.D., a poverty relief nonprofit. There she installed gardens at low income families homes and helped families along through out the garden seasons. She enjoys teaching gardening to students because it reconnects this technology generation with mother nature. Everyone loves to eat, it is a universal common ground. By showing kids where their food comes from and how we are connected to our food we ultimately our reconnecting or minds and bodies, something many of us forget to do in our fast paced environment. When she is not out working on community building Michelle enjoys camping, rock climbing, training martial arts, watching movies and playing board games.
