Thinking about the Yester-garden...

It's barely February and already plans are hatching for Yestermorrow's garden this season. Our new kitchen/garden intern, Stephanie Pierce, has hit the ground running, making plans, seed lists, and more. There's even talk about getting laying chickens and building a mobile coop! We're thrilled to be making progress towards our goal of growing more food on campus.
We are looking for a few tools and materials to help round out our garden program-- if you have something extra that you'd be willing to donate, please drop me an email ( or drop it by the school.

On our "wish list" for the garden:
Handheld snips/pruners (2)
Soil thermometer
More coldframes
Hula/Stirrup hoe
Hori Hori Garden Knife
Vermiculture supplies (worms!)
Twine tape and twine
Soil Test Kits
Potting soil
Germinating Mix
Misc Seed Trays and Transplant pots
Black plastic
Concrete reinforcing mesh
Watering can
Garden gloves
Aerator for compost tea

We're also looking for donations of seeds, starts, transplants, etc. Do you have any perennial herbs, berries, flowers or vegetables that need dividing (asparagus, rhubarb, chives, mint, thyme, raspberries)?
