Vertical Gardening - Students Build UP!

Thorough Cleaning is a Critical First Step

GPES is building quite a array of food garden plots.  The newest addition is a demonstration vertical garden.

Students cleaned used gutters to re-purpose in the garden.  The gutters were then painted and filled with soil and worm castings from our worm bin.  Finally, gutters were painted and hung on the existing chain link fence.

Great Team Work - We are Ready to Plant 
Cub Scout Pack 3 helped us to plant the gutters with radishes.

The vertical garden demonstrates a gardening option for small spaces and supports Glacier Park’s commitment to teaching environmental responsibility through the 3 R’s.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Thanks to Green Team Leader, Cathy Haws and the GPES Green Team students for this blog post!
