A few weeks ago we were fortunate enough to have an group of students from the University of Washington join us in the Westgarden. They were incredibly helpful and such a joy to work with!
The group of 10 students were part of the UW Urban Farm class doing a farm tour of Whidbey Island. Some of their classmates also helped out Cary Peterson at the South Whidbey Academy farm field and others joined Camille Green at the Good Cheer Food Bank garden.
We had the students help us weed out and build up some of the Westgardens’ oldest medicinal herb beds. The students were able to learn about some of the medicinal herbs we have growing in the garden including Yarrow, Apothecary’s Rose, Feverfew, Echinacea and Comfrey as well as hone their weeding and bed building skills.
Thank you all for your help!
