Gardening Class at GEEE

For 5 weeks in June and July, Cream Co. taught a perennial garden gardening class at GEEE.

 As Marie says, "to garden is to weed," so we took the opportunity to weed the Abundance Garden.  What is a weed? an unwanted or invasive plant.  We decided as a group that the thistle was a weed.

 Each student made a version of our tomato planter made from a 5-gallon bucket. and planted a tomato plant on the roof.

 The class was very conversational, students bringing questions from their own gardens.

The class was a social and community event.  It fulfilled a need to get one's hands in the dirt and just chat.  We miss our students now that the class is over.
