As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, I’m working my way through the Environmental Studies program at Sonoma State University. In addition to my classes for this semester, I’m doing a two-credit internship in the campus garden, spending approximately 6 hours a week doing whatever needs doing.
I spend my first official day in the garden on Friday, meeting the other students who I’ll be working with, and becoming familiar with the space.
Our first task was clearing out some of the beds and getting them ready for seedlings that were started last semester.
And then they pulled out a bunch of flats with various winter weather seedling — mustard, broccoli, various lettuces, and peas.
I’m looking forward to working on the garden over the next four months, and watching it transform from this restful, wintery space, to a vibrant, verdant garden.
