Photos from June 2013 Soup Kitchen garden installation.
Twenty seven middle-school children and their adult leaders from Bethlehem, PA spent the week with Randi installing an alternative-technique vegetable garden behind Tabernacle Presbyterian Church. They utilized wood pallets, straw bales, and tires, as well as a rain gutter grow system to grow a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs. They also added rain barrels with soaker hoses or float valves to minimize the need to hand water the planters. Using recycled cinder blocks, they built a 3 section compost bin. To top it all off, the kids made bird houses and signs as garden art. Their art complemented the recycled metal tools that were welded together to make "scare crows" for a bird bath and bird feeder.
