We were able to build 3 raised garden beds and start growing vegetables for snacks. Children will be busy this summer tending the gardens and harvesting.
What challenges did or does your project face?
We've had a cool spring here in Belfast and its been a challenge to get the gardens launched.
How are you working to overcome them?
We're getting going with help from a local farm, Bahner farm with seedlings. Volunteer parents are pitching it to help us. Our landscape company has also pitched in to help us by bringing loam and compost.
What did you or your project learn this season that might be useful to others as well?
Start planning early and round up volunteers to help.
