We Love Interns!

May 16, 2022

Here in the north garden at Raincatcher’s we are sheet mulching 800 square feet of turf demonstration beds to create more space for growing vegetables.  It’s more work than it sounds!  Luckily, the 2022 Master Gardener interns have been ready and willing to give us that extra bit of help to complete the project. 

One Tuesday in May a great group of interns helped us clear a path large enough to get wheelbarrows through to the gate of our brand new fence. They also cut a large cover crop of fava beans down to the ground. 

This past Saturday the class mustered again and created paths through the new beds.

They also solarized the westernmost bed where it has been most difficult to convince the Bermuda grass to go away.
