The Garden Club members were excited to begin planning for the installation of our living wall today. We ordered this through Woolly School Garden and it looks like it is going to be a pretty neat project. We have the opportunity to plant edibles, annuals, and perennials in the hallways of our school.
The students in the club will be responsible to care for the plants and they are really excited to bring a bit of life into the hallways! In order to decide where to put the planters we discussed location, temperature, and traffic of the area. We then took one of the planters and used it as a measurement tool to see if it would fit in the space. You also have to take hanging plant space into consideration.
In other news we will be starting our seeds soon for our garden as well as mapping out the garden beds based on what plants grow well together. We are in the process of planning a community event and more info will come as that develops!
All in all, a very productive day in Garden Club!
