Autumn garden updates

Under the watchful eye of our Garden Club, the JYC Garden thrived throughout the autumn months. We have many students who love to help us, but we are still looking for more adult volunteers. No garden knowledge or experience is necessary, just a willingness to help out with some simple tasks.

Students watered,

and swept,

pulled out the dead leaves,

and were assisted by school staff and volunteers.

The lilac vine is not very happy, but it still managed to blossom.

Carrots have grown well, and the students have found them tasty.

Snap peas are almost to the top of the fence and are starting to flower. We look forward to enjoying them in the spring.

Sloat Garden Center donated their leftover pumpkins after Halloween, and our garden looked very seasonal throughout November.
