VISTA Post #2: Garden Beginnings at W.R. Coile Middle School

These first few weeks of my AmeriCorps VISTA year of service has been busy with creating a new garden space at W. R. Coile Middle School. Garden installation is exciting! The school was renovated last year and the previous garden space was inconveniently located after the renovation. With the generous help of UGArden, and my co-VISTAs, a new garden plot has been tilled, beds shaped, compost delivered and applied, and a cover crop planted. This week, students have begun to help with planting collards, watering herbs, and removing trash from our greenhouse space.
