"A Place at the Table"

Planting Communities is excited for the new movie "A Place at the Table". The latest newest film about our broken food system in America. No one should be hungry in a country of abundance. 

It comes out March 1st and will also be available on Itunes and On Demand. Check it out! We will.

PS. Even if you cannot see the film, we should all do our part to educate and help make sure everyone has equal access to healthy food.

Getting started

San Juana took some student out today to enjoy the sun and fresh winter air. It was an amazing 54 degrees fahrenheit today and the students were busy keeping themselves warmer by turning some soil. San Juana said they were intrigued with the plentiful amount worms and soil life already in the soil. This garden will blossom greatly with so much love and attention.

Your thoughts?

What would people like to learn about in the gardening world? Let us know your thoughts for it will help us in our goals for workshop ideas. For example: lasagna gardening? Compost? Vermiculture? You get the idea.
You can also follow this thread on Facebook. If someone has posted one you would like to learn about go ahead and "Like" it! We will tally the "likes" too. Here's a link if you want to go there,


What to do on such nice winter day....?

Over the next week or so here is what can be planted now: 
Garlic (cloves), shallots, peas, onion sets, radishes, asparagus crowns, arugula (tasty greens), and fava beans (soak over night prior to planting for better germination). If you cannot plant these it is also a good time to weed and turn the soil (if you do that). Happy gardening and start your year round garden now!

PS. Ian planted tons of garlic on sunday! He was hungry all day from the delicious smell emanating from the cloves.
