New life in our garden

Here at camp we have a very special garden that the girls are able to utilize for learning about how plants grow, what they eat, and other gardening information as well. For some girls they have never even been told about gardening and others have their own. It allows the girls to create something sustainable that can be utilized by other girls after they are gone.

Well, our garden seemed kind of empty and we thought that our plants needed some new friends so we replanted for the year. We added tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, herbs, and several other plants. The campers were a great help to us and our councilors dug in too. Eco, our naturalist, is so excited for the garden to be more whole again and can't wait to share it with the rest of our campers this summer. Next on the list, composting!
