This blog follows the building, cultivating, and harvesting of the Sanderlin IB World School schoolyard garden in St. Petersburg, Florida. Since January 2009, the Edible Peace Patch Project has been developing innovative community-oriented food system and nutrition educational programs in south St. Petersburg, Florida. Sanderlin is the 2nd school to participate in our Garden Education Program.
Shannon and I undressed these eggplant plants on Tuesday, but refrained from giving them haircuts.
This is all the eggplant collected from the stripping. Quite the variety.
Today we planted some endives, swiss chard, joi-choi, cabbage, and broccoli.
Though most of the original pineapples have perished, those that have remained are flourishing.
I found this ripe little banana in a trash bag in the shed today. It's like what Marco of the Shuar people told me after I accidentally dropped a handful of yuca on the ground. "Be careful. That's food, my friend."
