Spring has sprung in many ways!

So much has been happening out here this week. We have been transplanting, moving the greenhouse plants around and around, uncovering garden beds, weeding, and planting hundreds of kale, collards, and chard.


We have been digging around a lot in our worm bins too. They are thriving right now and of course they a centerpiece of our sustainability focus here at Orca. Hundreds of pounds of food from the lunchroom goes in here every year.

We also hosted a Seattle Slow Food meeting this week where we have been networking with other involved with gardening and youth. Our friends Readers To Eaters helped coordinate this- they also gave us a great book that I have been reading with students- Sylvia’s spinach!
great book!

great book!

And lastly- the greenhouse is alive! We have started thousands of plants that will provide us and many schools & organizations with organic food.
