Help the Hunger Coalition create an edible forest in the Bloom Community Farm by growing plant starts in a greenhouse.
Do you have access to a greenhouse? The Hunger Coalition is creating an edible forest in their Bloom Community Farm out Quigley, but they need your help to do it! This spring, between March and May, gather your classmates and plant strawberry plants, squash, and gourds in a greenhouse. Your class will take care of the plants until they are ready to be transferred to the bigger garden. Eventually, these plants will help to create edible structures at the Bloom Garden!
