Richmond High Garden Update!

July has been a great month at the Richmond High garden ? ! We ended our summer course with the students and for the last week they painted some raised beds, cooked a meal with produce from the garden & made herbal salves with beeswax straight from the Richmond bees ?✨The flowers have been blooming and constantly having us in AWE ? we always know what’s coming but when it comes we’re still very amazed and super grateful for the beauty & boost of serotonin these flowers have given us this summer ?& a big thank you to Rebecca from @richmondgrows for coming out and teaching us how to hand pollinate our squash so we can collect some seeds ?!! There is a seed bank at the Richmond Library for those who want some seeds only thing you gotta do is save your seeds and bring some back when the time comes ?✨Benefits of collecting seeds:-Save Money-Resilient Seeds-Build relationship with the plant
