05.21.2011 Earth Day
Here is a new documentary on the first Earth Day, the events that led up to it, and where are we today on sustainability issues.
Once again, we discussed the upcoming talk on May 26th. We also talked about the 3 upcoming documentary screenings and the possibility of free food at the events. Club members asked if we could continue the meeting out in the vegetable garden, so we headed outside.
We planted some beans and herbs, including borage. We still pulled out some more pampas grass.
We prepared a new garden bed, which we planted root type plants.
The tomato plants are coming along with clusters of flowers and fruit.
Soon, we will have some Japanese eggplants.
Even though the lettuce is getting huge, they are going to seed.
We talked about the upcoming events including Dr. Ling O’Connor’s talk and sustainability documentaries screening. We went out to the Permaculture Garden and apply some mulch from a tree pruning service (that otherwise would be sent to the dump). Check out the pictures below:
Milli Macen-Moore, Master Gardener of Milagro Allegro, talks about on how to start a backyard garden.
