The ICS St. Francis Garden club worked really hard last Friday. They pulled weeds in the upper part of the ICS garden, turned the soil to loosen it for new plants, mixed in compost to add nutrients to the soil, formed the rows with levels for walking in between the raised levels for planting, added newspaper and mulch to the rows to stop the growth of weeds and to mark where students can walk.
The students also harvested the carrots growing in the garden and fertilized the tomatoes.
Each student will be assigned a row to plan, to plant and to keep up this spring.
We thank the Town N Country Garden Circle women for their help with the club and with the butterfly garden again this week.
