|An American Youthworks teacher gardens.|
Since the gardens are in the drainage ditch, they are watered by rain and from upstream surface and ground water flow. The plants are in raised beds, adding water drainage and preventing their flooding during periods of heavy rain.
This garden is in an urban environment, which has hydrological consequences. As a small scale watershed quality strategy, we made sure to put mulch (e.g. pine needles) on all bare areas.
|We weeded and sowed Fall appropriate seeds. The shadow of yours truly is in the bottom left corner.|

|This is one of my favorite pics from the day. These little garden blessings were placed all around the garden.|
I hope you are having a great weekend! Tell me about it in the comments!
