Working together to beautify the school habitat for our soaring eagles!

Expanding & Weeds & Weeds

Here are some photos from the garden this morning.  The first image shows a new structure adjacent to the 8-bed raised garden that will support a native vine called jacquemontia.  It is the first in this area outside the villas near the garden to begin its transformation to a native habitat.  Before long the bamboo trellis will be covered in purple flowers.  The next photos show the extent of our weed issue.  If you have 15 to 20 minutes in the morning to pull some weeds we would be very appreciative.  The students stop and pull a few before morning classes.  The final shots illustrate how happy the zinnia, echinacea and calendula are in the garden.  These flowers get many visits from butterflies and bees throughout the day.  Lovely!  More posts soon so keep checking back!  dsc07292dsc07293dsc07294dsc07295dsc07296dsc07297
