It has been way too long since I posted here on our blog, but don’t be fooled– the garden grows on!!
In fact with so many students gone this summer I frankly didn’t have time to blog about what was growing, it was hard enough to keep up with it all….So to give you the highlights of the season here is a brief summary of what we grew this summer
Now that the students are back and getting dirty in the garden again we can tackle some of those unruly weeds and break new ground for development of new perennial herb and vegetable gardens.
As far as classes go, I had to cancel my “Gardening in the Desert Class” for the fall due to low enrollment, though it was a hit in the spring, I just didn’t get enough signups…so if you are interested let me know and I will offer it again.
However I am super excited to share some of the fall classes that some honored collages and friends are offering in our garden.
There is Arina Pittman of the Permaculture Institute offering ‘Create a Raspberry Patch’ which will be taking place right on our very own garden in just a week or so. Saturday Sept 20th from 9-12pm you will learn everything you wanted to know a more from start to finish about growing your own luscious high desert berries.
After all these rains I imagine many of you are more interested in Arid Land Restoration than ever before. Well you are in luck, one of our best local Sustainability educators, Amanda Bramble of Ampersand Sustainable Learning Center will be offering a class on use that the following Saturday morning Sept 27th from 9-12pm right here on campus and you will get to learn to read the land and work with the waters right here on site.
Then Tracy Neal and Bob Pennington will also be offering some of their hit classes like “Plants for Santa Fe”, Gardening Good Enough to Eat”And “Garden Superstars” to name a few.
You can still sign up for any of these by calling the Continuing Ed office at 505-428-1270 or go right online here.
