Garden Enrichment and Living classroom

On Monday February 3rd we hosted a lovely group of volunteers from the Living Classroom to the MiddleBrook Center. We had an extensive tour of the garden including our aquaponics system and native plant nursery. On the tour we reviewed our different benchmarks of sustainability and healthy land use. We also propagated a California native, Quailbush, as well as other plants around the garden that the volunteers found interesting. Some volunteers constructed an herb pallet garden while others harvested greens and other veggies for our lunch, which consisted of a veggie stir fry, salad, and rice and beans. Our lunch included sage, lovage, celery, swiss chard, kale, collards, salad greens, watercress, fennel, and more, all coming from the bounty of our garden!  Take a look at the photos:
