School and community gardens are exploding. I hope that it’s not just a good trend, but a move toward the new normal.
There is so much to learn from others’ efforts, and I love to get out and see what’s happening other places.
Last week I took my kids to the Great Park in Irvine where they have an impressive demonstration garden called the Farm + Food Lab. Wow! Also, my sister is involved with her girls’ wonderful school garden in San Jose. I posted pictures of cool ideas from both places under the Children’s Garden Ideas tab in the black menu above. There are also pictures of “best practices” from school gardens across the state from last year’s road trip. Please visit! And if you have a photograph of an outstanding idea, feel free to e-mail it to me and I’ll include it in the library. Thanks!
