Urban Farming Club Plants Spring Garden

Seniors Andrew Russo and Kutauba AbuMousa planting for the early summer harvest.

On a recent Saturday morning, the Urban Farming Club cleaned, tilled, fertilized, and planted their spring garden. With thanks to Southern Gateway Garden Center, the club looks forward to harvesting a variety of tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, parsley, rosemary, celery, and red, yellow and green peppers. The garden is all organic, using flowers as insecticide. The crops will be donated a local non-profit organization this summer.
