Got down to some work today in the Environmental Youth Alliance youth garden at the Cottonwood Gardens. Watered and weeded some of the veggie beds. Also harvested wonderful Mulberries from a large tree that we later used to make fruit leather. Meanwhile over in the Native Plant Demo Garden in Strathcona Gardens, we dug a hole to erect a tall bird perch and nesting pole. Much of the focus with this year’s Wild Minds is on birds and understanding the interrelationship between birds, plants, our food source and ecology in general.
