This last Friday, we had our first big massive garden clean out. We removed any overgrown vegetables, trimmed back the tomatoes, and chopped up the organic wheat and fava bean stocks.
Some of the debris from the winter storms, was crushed and composted. The best part was harvesting our Fall crops of Leeks, white onions, red onions, and yellow onions. Soon, we should have some organic garlic to harvest. We even gave away some of our harvest to staff workers in the L and CC Buildings.

This week, we talked about the current projects in the organic vegetable garden and the ways sustainability fits into Pasadena City College. We walked over to the cactus garden and removed a significant amount of weeds, that plagued the garden. Thank you to all the seeds members that helped out.

We had our first Spring clean-up and general meeting. During the meeting, we saw a rare sight, a bee swarm land a few feet away form us.

Pasadena City College’s Organic Garden is full of life. The leeks that we transplanted in October are huge. The vines on our trellis are full of snap peas and beans. We have sunflowers blooming, heads of Amish Deer Tongue, and vines full of tomatoes (we are growing tomatoes in winter). The Swiss Chard are healthy.
Also, check the photo of our first batch of compost.
