Volunteer to help develop an elementary school garden
St. Petersburg College has partnered with High Point Elementary School and a local gardening expert to develop a “permaculture garden” that will have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems.
The garden will produce a variety of vegetables, fruits, perennials and annuals, all grown in an ecologically responsible fashion.
On Thursday, August 13, 2009 from 8:30am until around 11:00am (the more participants we have, the quicker it will go), volunteers will be adding a layer of amended top soil and a final layer of mulch to prepare the garden for the coming school year.
This is a great opportunity to learn about sustainable farming techniques from local permaculture expert, Robert Segundo.
High Point Elementary School is located at 5921 150th Avenue North in Clearwater. Be sure to wear closed toed shoes and bring gloves, a hat, sunscreen, a rake and/or a shovel and LOTS of water.
It may be hot that morning, but remember, it’s for the kids! See you there!
