project for a school garden
Hi. I used to read this forum a long time ago but I got busy and haven't had time to do much gardening. I was reading the compost whacko thread yesterday and was glad to find that it hasn't changed!
Can anyone give me some advice? A couple of us are trying to think of some projects to plan with our school community to do in our school garden that hasn't been used in awhile. We are trying to get it going again and get people excited about it.
Some ideas we had were planting nitrogen-fixing crops and inviting people to come help. Another idea was doing a lasagna bed and asking people bring materials. Or setting up a worm bin.
We have some big planter boxes that used to grow vegetables and some beds on the ground. But I'm kind of not sure what would be better or should we try to do both projects in different spots? Are either projects better to accomplish different things with the soil or better for planters versus beds in the ground?
