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.
