Another Day at the Garden

This is a shot of the pretty fence that the arboretum staff generously built for the student garden. Mary Joe, Kenny, and Eady, Students for Sustainability can't thank you enough for offering your garden knowledge, abundant space, constant support, and most importantly, your love! If those reading haven't been out to the arboretum, you should definitely take an hour or two to go visit. It's a great space cared for by great people.

Above, UA student and Students for Sustainability member Eric VonNostrand helps weed the garden.

Having just learned about taking care of tomato plants, Lizzie Beale detaches suckers to help the plant conserve its energy.

That's all for now. If you'd like to get involved in the garden project or join Students for Sustainability, you can email and/or look for our facebook group, UA Organic Community Garden. Although we'll just be doing little gardening tasks for the next month or two, we greatly appreciate any help and want you to come out to the arboretum with us! Transportation generally isn't a problem, either. We like to arrange garden duty times so that multiple students can travel together and work side by side (we like cutting down our carbon emissions, too!). We'll continue to blog here about upcoming garden events, the arboretum, and student workshops.
