The two-and-a-half month long school shutdown this spring was catastrophic for area learning gardens, leaving them overgrown and neglected. But Barrio Botany has been fortunate to have support this summer from industrious volunteers who have contributed countless hours to bring the gardens back into healthy production.
They’ve been seeding and weeding and transplanting. They’ve potted up trees and plants. They’ve mulched tirelessly. They have fixed irrigation and pruned tomato plants. They are heroes.
Because of our wonderful volunteers, we are able to keep producing fresh fruits and vegetables for the community while school is out of session.
