Coyote Garden Preparations
We have upgraded from dirt to true soil over the Winter Break! In case you weren't aware, what was inside our garden beds wasn't very plant friendly. Soil analysis was done in August showing that we had very poor soil lacking some key ingredients like nitrogen. Through our district garden grant, we are able to have access to Larry Thompson's expertise. Larry is a Texas Master Gardener who is helping us to get our gardens off to the best start possible. Below you will see just a fraction of the work he has done to help us. While we were away, Larry amended our garden beds with organic soil, compost, manure, and organic fertilizers. Thanks Larry!
Composting at CRE
We now have Shepherd composting bins to help us begin composting. These bins will help us recycle organic material into rich additions for the soil in our raised garden beds. Larry Thompson is a composting guru and will be helping to teach our third graders who are in DREAMS Lab gardening team time more about the process.
