The big picture of the garden: each fifth of the pinwheel has a main planting, and can be planted successively with companion herbs and flowers. This Sunday we plan to plant flowers with both the young and older children's classes. The ring of sunflowers (of which only one is planted) comes from a children's book I love, and each sunflower can be sister planted with a climber and a ground plant. Herbs and flowers can be continually tucked in, so there is little to no unplanted soil.
The only rule: walk on the cypress mulch paths to preserve the living soil.
Wishlist: get these planted or prioritize: sunflower circle, corn, carrots, flowers, herbs.
Check out this Companion Planting Chart from Burpee to see if what you want to bring (seeds or plants) works well with what we have already planted.
Children's classes will plant seeds and work in the garden every other Sunday.
Everyone is welcome to come and sit, meditate, and slow down in this beautiful space we share.
Everyone is encouraged to contribute in any way that brings joy, here are a few suggestions but bring your own ideas: planting, documenting, harvesting (eventually), distribution of food to neighbors
