Wild Minds 2018 – Day Two

Got down to work in the Environmental Youth Alliance garden on a very hot day mostly weeding, watering, and harvesting. Located in the beautiful Cottonwood Gardens, this semi food forest/food garden is a great place to learn about growing food in the city. As a food forest, there are many  plant “stories” so to speak and like a forest there are large trees such as apple, mulberry and other trees, with a secondary story of large shrubs or perennial berries including oregon grape, raspberries, dwarf apple and more then with lower, near ground shrubs, like salal and other berries. A special treat was harvesting mulberries and apples which along with (store bought) plums and blueberries, we cooked up to make fruit leather.
