PGPIRG Gardens are growing strong!

Dave and Min, our two summer students and Garden Managers are stoked on gardening! So much so, that they have been off line for a few weeks. But, here are some photos of what they have been up too since May. 

imageFirst off, in the Rooftop Garden they weeded it and added 3 inches of compost to the whole thing! 

imageAt the same time, they stated a bunch of seedlings in near by green houses.

Dave and Min worked hard to put up the greenhouse plastic in the Learning Garden to heat up the soil. Soon they will transplant tomatoes and basil into the greenhouse.

Min hardened off  frost tolerant plants (like kale, cabbage, chamomile and borage) in the Learning Garden for two days and then transplanted those hardy plants into the rooftop garden. Lola the dog helps out too :)
