Tate Schubert's tomatoes from seeds. Very impressive!!

We had eight youth and nine parents and adult volunteers. Our two Master Gardener consultants for this meeting were Debbie Monchamp and Orv Hastaad.

Debbie showed us how to make pots and molded shapes out of shredded paper and water. The molded shapes can have plant seeds sprinkled on top and when the shape has dried, be given as gifts to plant!

Orv gave us much information on building raised beds, soil composition and what types of nutrients plants need to grow strong and produce fruit.

Our next meeting will be May 1st at 8 a.m. at the CWC Fairgrounds.

Lyle Johnson, our volunteer carpentry expert will teach us how to build our raised bed frames. Thanks to Lyle we have had all the lumber we need contributed by Simonson Lumber and Lyle along with nails. Bring your tools to help! Don't forget goggles if you plan to be working around flying sawdust!
