Edible Schoolyard, first tree planting phase
Today I continued working with students and teachers at Escuela Isaac Rabin on our edible schoolyard project. I brought a variety of interesting, useful plants, mostly trees, which we planted throughout a corner and two boarders of the grounds. I didn’t take any photos but some of the students were documenting the whole process, taking notes, filming and taking photos, so hopefully I can get a hold of some of their photos to upload on this site.
Today we focused on planting trees. During our next phase of planting we will be focusing on inter-planting smaller, shorter-lived plants (mostly edible) in between the trees, so as to take advantage of the open ground and sun exposure while the trees are still relatively small. We also plan to take advantage of the fence as a vertical trellis for vines.
Below is list of the species we’ve planted so far, each one links to its respective entry.
Carambola, Cereza China (Panama),Starfruit
Albaca (Basil), I will upload a page
