Today is March 25, 2014 at the weather today was fairly nice. Of course it was a little chilly but there was also some sunshine coming through the clouds. So instead of staying and the headquarters we were transported carleton elementary school which was a section of 26 greenhouses. Where we were separated into three groups with each group having a different task. One group was assigned to folding tarps and tying them with rope. Second group was going around the outside of all 26 greenhouses and would take old siding off and replace it with new wooden panels. Lastly, is the group i was in where we were assigned the lovely task to sift through dirt, wood chips, worms and worm poop. It was a never ending pile of dirt and worms.
At the end of the day when we finished our jobs we got the chance to visit the Growing Power warehouse where they manufacture and distribute the natural goods that are grown in the gardens. They also hold workshops where people learn about composting, aquaculture, agriculture and vermiculture. They also own a root washer which is a machine that cleans vegetables.
