Community Service Update: Seed workshop

Bohemian Bounty teamed up with Edible San Marcos to host a seed starting workshop for the children who live at the C.M. Allen Housing Authority Neighborhood. The workshop began with leading questions to the young audience like, “What kind of vegetables to you like?” and “What kind of vegetable do you want to grow?” Furrow young brows looked at Audra and Suzi but by the end of the session, the kids were enthusiastically clutching their potted seeds. Like experts they were quickly lining up the number and variety of species planted and saying loudly to us -”I want to plant Kale.”

These kids probably never ate Kale before and we will let you know how popular it is after they taste it. Meanwhile, we are preparing for our next garden work day, April 4, 2009- fencing in the garden area for C.M. Allen. The garden will measure 30 feet deep by 60 feet long. It will be situated to the right of the K.A.D. (Kids Against Drugs) Store where the youth of the housing projects go to use computers, purchase snacks and meet for activities.

Edible San Marcos is still looking for donations for this project: fencing material, mulch, compost, organic garden products, seeds, and especially volunteers. Email ediblesanmarcos@gmail.com

Plants, Plants, Plants!

It’s that time of year! All sorts of plants are ready to go in the garden and we can stop worrying about one last freeze (I hope!) We picked up a huge load of fresh transplants (huge for us, anyway) from our greenhouse grower this week. If you’ve ever wondered how to safely transport 240 vegetable and herbs plants take a look at the pictures below. My trusty Subaru Forester and a home-made rack worked perfectly. Even the greenhouse’s cat climbed in to inspect it and wanted to come home with us.

Poolside Bounty

Conversion of poolside cactus patch to veggies. We had fun surrounding this pool area with green veggies instead of prickly plants.

Watch the timelapse video we shot that day compressing 9 hours in to 1 minute 30 seconds.
