Will you be at Clarke Middle today??
Whit Davis has asparagus popping up thanks to your donation! David Berle, JoHannah Biang, and Noelle Fuller, thank-you!!
Thank-you for the asparagus crowns when you moved plots this winter! I haven't checked Whit Davis Elementary schools' asparagus bed, but mine at home threw up a spear already!
Thank-you UGArden for the potting soil and greenhouse space to get our seeds growing for Ms. Carlson's pre-K class at Whit Davis Elementary!
Thank-you UGArden for the starter plants! We have yet another fall vegetable bed set up at Whit Davis Elementary! The students were so excited to get out and plant today! We even have a list going of students who want the task of watering regularily!
Thank-you UGArden for letting me come in as a community volunteer over the past few years to learn so much about gardening from everyone! I have applied it now to volunteering at Whit Davis Elementary School, where we are establishing a small tea garden. It is going great! Lemon balm and Peppermint plants have been donated and we have harvested from both once already since planting last month! I look forward to everything else I can learn at UGArden and apply elsewhere in our community! Thank-you!
Yesterday I spent the most amazing day with friends and colleagues from the Georgia Herbalists Guild at the University of Georgia: botanical gardens, organic garden, medicinal plant garden, and Latin American ethnobotanical garden I ate some of the most delicious things: Okra blossoms in particular, but leaves all sorts of plants and herbs that I didn’t know would go in salad: raspberry leaf, holy basil, hibiscus hips, rose petals, lemon verbena, anise hyssop. I saw their mushroom logs, and now I also want to grow mushrooms: shiitake and oyster especially I brought home rosemary, ginger, astragalus, hibiscus and more. I am so gonna up my game when I plant next spring! I can buy my plants at their spring plant sale! Who knew??? This was an amazing outing, thanks Noell for making it so special.
The Horticulture Grad Student Association will be having a watermelon sale for fundraising today at UGArden from 4-6 pm. Please stop by and buy some delicious, locally grown watermelon and support the HGSA! Hope to see you there!
