We're ready for crops and kids

Today consisted of mixing soil with compost and sand and then laying it in the beds. We also built the bed for the herb garden and surrounded the butterfly garden with rocks.

We also built a compost bin so we can get the composting process started. Right now all we have in there is the grass that we dug up to make the beds, but soon we will start collecting food scraps from the cafeteria.

At the end of the day today we had all the beds and most of the marigold trench filled with soil. Tomorrow we'll have to finish the trench and build the greenhouse. Since the greenhouse came in a decomposing box with mostly decomposed directions, the assembly could be an interesting

It's so nice to see our hard work finally starting to look like a garden!
