Clearing, Harvesting and Seed-Saving


If you’re lucky enough to have a year round garden like Hamilton High School first week of school you’re still harvesting. The local food bank has been getting donations of tomatoes, squash, eggplant, basil, peppers, and okra.

At West Hollywood Elementary School the garden is not open year-round so during the first week of school students clear all the weeds and expired annuals and save seeds from artichokes (beneath the tuft of hair), cilantro (not shown), fennel and marigolds.

Next week we’ll add amendments, turn the soil and lay out our rows. Stayed tuned.
