This week the Green Teen Garden Project took some major steps in getting the garden area up and running. With the help of volunteers from the Master Gardener program (http://www.mastergardeners.org/scc.html), two raised garden beds were assembled inside the gated perimeter. Master Gardener, Fred Shulenburg, was on-hand to share his carpentry expertise during the construction. The two 3” X 6” garden beds are made of cedar wood and stand over 2” high; plus, they are equipped with retractable mesh fencing to help provide easy access and prevent back stress.

Upon completing construction, both garden beds were filled with a mixture of soil, compost and amendment all graciously donated by Yamagami’s Nursery in Cupertino, CA (http://www.yamagamisnursery.com/) and Kellogg’s Garden Product’s in Lockeford, CA (http://www.kellogggarden.com/). The overall donation consisted of: 20 bags-Top soil; 20 bags-Planting mix; and 16 bags- Harvest Supreme Amendment. The Green Teen Garden Project thanks all of our gracious sponsors.
