On Saturday November 7th I had the privilege of visiting the Edible School Yard in Berkeley, where I met up with Wendy Johnson. Wendy took an interest in our project and was kind enough to donate all the lettuce and herbs for our first planting. On Sunday November 8th the Grace Cathedral youth confirmation class joined a group of dedicated ECS clients for the inaugural planting at the Sanctuary! Soil was flying, as the team got busy in a veritable planting frenzy!
We filled one raised bed planter with lettuce starts and a prominently displayed marigold. In a variety plastic containers (salvaged from SF Dump) we repotted thyme, oregano, spearmint, and three different kinds of sage.
