The planting has begun in the community garden at the Main library in Oakland! The children who participate in the Homeschool Tuesdays program series helped to plant a variety of vegetables today. The Preschool Discovery group that meets on Thursdays will help to fill the second raised bed later in the week. The First Floor department has graciously agreed to let participants from Children’s help with the maintenance and nurturing of the garden throughout the summer.
During the coming weeks the children in Homeschool Tuesdays will learn about garden journaling, pollination, helpful insects, soil, and organic gardening. The focus this summer is nature and getting outdoors!
