Spring Garden Update

The Absegami sustainability team and science students have been hard at work over the last few weeks getting the gardens ready for spring and summer. Since last post, we readied all garden beds and completed the first planting of the following:

  • Beets
  • Yellow Onions
  • Red Onions
  • Chard
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Potatoes
  • Green Onions
  • Turnips
  • Carrots
  • Radishes 
  • Herbs

In addition, up in the Green House, we have all of our seedlings coming up nicely for our summer crops, which include; tomatoes, peppers, herbs, melons, squash, cucumber, and many others. As if there wasn't enough work to do in both gardens, we decided to add a chicken coop to the mix and have recently begun raising 6 chickens. The coop will fit nicely in our sustainable garden and we can't wait to get the chickens in there later this spring.  

In the meantime, the chickens are nice and cozy up in our science wing and getting to know all of our students.  It's gonna be a great summer at Absegami!!!
