A big Foothill thank you to all of the volunteers who have given their love and time to revive our Gardens this Summer!
The Kindergarten gardens were still in fairly good shape, but needed cleaning out, new soil, and fresh plants. Yamagami Garden Center was kind enough to donate all the plants for a butterfly garden!
The large raised bed by the library needed a lot more work! The roughly 40 by 15 foot bed was more than 20 years old and coming apart. Over two different workdays (July 9th and July 16th), volunteers removed the old retaining walls and replaced them with new redwood walls!
Foothill Community members will meet again this Saturday, August 13th, from 9am to 11:30am to get the garden ready for our incoming students! This Autumn, the garden themes are:
- How Much Water Do Our Plants Need?
- What Parts of Plants are Edible?
- What Plants did Native Californians Eat?
- What are Pollinators?
- How Do Worms Help Gardens?
- What Shapes Can We Find in the Garden?
