The kids that attended our first Throop Kids Program garden section planted seeds for our fall garden. We now have seedlings that will be ready to plant in the next few weeks. The kids have also been doing “vegetable treasure hunts” to identify and find different crops to harvest. Everybody enjoyed finding and picking pumpkins from our very own patch! The Throop Kids Program garden time takes place on the second Sunday of the month from 11:30 to noon. (The next will be on October 12.)
The 1,320 gallon rainwater catchment tank we ordered should arrive in the next few weeks! We have gutter adaptations in the works, and plans for deeper swales and extended French drains across the Del Mar yard. Unfortunately, this necessitates excavating our urbanite patio. We anticipate workshops and construction will take place in October. Thanks to all who helped with our crowd source grant!
My deepest gratitude for all the effort from so many hearts and hands to make TLG a vibrant community.
