Planting Day Fall 2010
This year the students planted native species to honour and learn about the local eco-system.
Straw was used to insulate the soil, keep down weeds.
Lavender planted in May 2007 has thrived on little water - it stays!
Last summer's "weed experiment" worked - garden beds had reduced soil loss, with increased nitrogen.
A job well done!
