Getting in the dirt and planting!

Tomatoes, basil, lettuce, broccoli, cabbage- oh my! Food is being planted- it should be a bountiful harvest this summer & fall. The hoophouse went up thanks to the 4th graders. Kindergarteners got to plant baby lettuces, broccoli, and cabbage today. Spring fever is in the air- the kids are little squirrely, the smell of summer freedom in the air, the hibernation of Seattle’s long cold seasons is coming to an end- hopefully?

Hillman City P-Patch Food Bank Garden

Orca is proud to be part of Seattle’s amazing p-patch foodbank connection. Seattle donates tons of produce every year to foodbanks across the city. Our Hillman City p-patch has agreed to let us take charge of their foodbank garden, in conjunction with the plot we already have there. The food goes to the Rainier Valley Food Bank.

A lot of Orca organic starters went in the ground there today. Jeff’s 6th grade math/science class is continuing the good work they have been doing all year around gardening and food. We got tomatoes, zuchinni, broccoli, and cabbages in the ground.
