The current area behind our greenhouse was a mess, filled with massive weedy plants and even poison parsnip, very uneven ground for walking, and unusable. We are starting over, and will be designing the space for not only education, but also for various plantings and projects over time. We are so excited!
We just went into phase two of the nursery, which is the addition of an outdoor space that will serve as an additional place for outdoor plants and acclimating seedlings, but also an education space for our upcoming classes (to be announced soon!)
We built three more large raised beds, and those will be in the teaching area space. We are bringing in a couple large spruce picnic tables for outdoor classes for the shaded area, and for visitors seeking shade. ;-) Kids will be able to use the tables for coloring nature pictures when visiting as well that they can take home with them. More photos and updates soon!
