It’s been a while

It’s been a while since we last posted, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been working!
Here are some updates:

We’re finished with our semester now so we’re transitioning to our summer care team. If you’d like to be a part of it, email shoshanna.kahne@tufts.edu.

We began planting an herb garden in the beds in front of Tisch Library. We’re still looking for more herbs to plant, so if you have any ideas, let us know!

We transplanted the plants from the greenhouse into the garden! Our beds are filling up, but we still have a few empty ones ready for the planting whims of a gardener!

I’ve had a water barrel sitting in my backyard for like a year now and we finally set it up by the corner of the shed closest to the garden.

Professor Ellmore will be bringing his summer session class down to the garden to show them plants in mid-growth. In return for letting him do this, he said he’d tend to our garden a little himself!

To take this fall:
EXP-0026-F: Introduction to Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems

-Make legit educational signs
-Plant more things!
-Build a spiral herb garden!
