A big THANKS! to some students from Loyola in Chicago, IL and some Notre Dame Students that have come down for the past two weeks to be in ASPI’s service learning program. These Loyola students have helped clean out high tunnel and plant some leaf lettuce, kale and spinach back in it. They helped start more seeds for the participants.
They also helped prepare the community garden. They first weeded. Then measured the whole garden and mapped it out in even plots for everyone. After all this was done Notre Dame student started on getting compost in the garden and tilling. They done lots of work at the Nature Center, painted shelves at ASPI. They even made some pretty ASPI shirts and bags and lots more.
It has been a very busy two weeks but we are a lot closer to being ready for spring. We are ready for the snow and cold weather to go so we can start to grow!
