The Lake View Garden is in its transformation stage! In preparation for the hard work ahead of us, we stocked up on the proper tools for the job. Equipped with pointed shovels, hoes, and pitchforks, working in the garden was extremely productive. The space is finally getting cleared of weeds which allow the existing plants to flourish. After a thorough search of the plants in the garden, we identified the following plants: tomatoes, blueberries, sweet potatoes, parsley, onions, corn, banana tree, avocado tree, mulberry tree, apple tree, lemon tree, strawberries and lettuce. We hope to open the garden up to students, parents, and teachers next week so that they too may join in on the fun of gardening and help make their school garden an experiential learning environment. Now is the time to begin planting before spring arrives so there is still much to be done!
