Planting Continues at Sanctuary Shelter with the help of the Oregon Extension

On Saturday, November 14th, about a dozen college students from the Oregon Extension teamed up with ECS clients to plant a variety of brassicas.

About a half dozen upstart cauliflower plants, some young cabbages, and several kinds of flowering kale were all eager to get out of their pots and into fresh soil!

The kale and cabbage were kindly donated by the garden department at Cole Hardware, which needed to make room for a new shipment of poinsettias. (I guess its that time of year…)  Wendy Johnson provided the cauliflower which came from the Green Gulch Farm Zen Center greenhouse.  The rain held off until the very last plant was in the ground.  Then the skies opened up!
