Week 4, Garden Planting 1

This week, the students learned the process of planting young plants. We purchased Milkweed, Black Willow, Laurel Sumac and a Torrey Pine from RECON Native Plants, Inc. Two representatives from the US Fish & Wildlife Service joined us and helped the kids with the process of digging the holes, preparing the soil, loosening the roots of the plants, and making a watering trough at the base of the plants. Jonathan Snapp—Cook and Frank Winter shared how they came to work for US Fish & Wildlife and the different opportunities available at the government agency.
