Overview of West View Learning Garden 2015
We are learning how to make the garden a more sustainable way by learning about composting and worm compost tea. We experienced how important it is to add biology to the soil and watched fungi and rhizomes under microscopes improve our soil. We added new fungi amendments to our own soil and learned that a certain fungi is the biggest living organism in the world. We experimented with adding bio-teas and charted the growth before and after on tomato plants.
In class we have high school mentors from Sage Hills High come to teach us about sustainable agriculture and gardening. We have planted poppies and learned about food miles and how food gets to our tables. Recently the mentors brought in a live chicken and we learned how chickens help a garden with organic pest control and contribute to the soil biology.
