Fall Prep and Teaching RHS Agriculture Course Online

Good afternoon family, hope y’all been safe and taking good care of your mental and physical health. We want to start off by thanking the lady bugs in our gardens and farms. Lady bugs eat the aphids on our tomatoes. This year we didn’t have as much aphids as previous years and it’s all thanks to the lady bugs for coming through!
These past weeks the education crew (@theverdegarden & @rhs_urbanag ) have been dedicating time to seed saving, and seeding some flowers/pollinators & veggies for the fall season. We also want to thank Adam for holding it down with the Urban Agriculture course this semester for the Richmond high youth!! Today the youth learned how to make a basil pasta made with ingredients from the garden. Hoping to inspire and continue to educate youth about food & sustainability
