Donation to Heritage Middle School

With proceeds from our plant sale we purchased the bark and plants .  There are 2 tree planters and 2 planters of plants.  The plants are hard to see, but they are a Boxwood in the middle and thyme and sedums around it.  They did not want any plants that would attract bees, and they wanted low maintenance.  IMG_0926 IMG_0925 The school grounds people did the planting.

 

Donation to Chino Valley High School

image001This year proceeds from our annual plant sale have allowed us to donate gardening tools to the Chino Valley High School. The students have two green houses and will start by growing tomatoes. They are in need of more garden tools so anyone who has extra tools at home please contact the high school to make a donation.

Potato Challenge

 

Club members have tried growing potatoes for the past few years – some in  pots, some in the ground, some with starts from a nursery, some by cutting up store bought potatoes, with varied results.  We will try it again this year – planting time is around St. Patrick’s day.
