Today in the garden, we added sugar cane mulch in preparation for a hot Summer. We are hoping that our mulch will retain some moisture and slow down the weeds while we are on holidays.
Some of our school families have offered to water our plants during the holiday break. This is great news! Last year we returned to an amazing sight with our Mandala Vegetable Garden filled to the brim with gorgeous produce.
This year we have not planted quite as much (due to my long holiday in 3rd term!) but our orchard and other gardens will need water...unless we continue to have the rain we have experienced recently. How amazing for us to come out of an extensive drought....something some of our students haven't experienced. We still harvest and utilize our rainwater collected in our many tanks and our students remain aware of our water usuage.
