Through out the week our group has made many preparations on how to go about preparing the garden and the main necessities needed to complete this task. We have been in steady contact with Rita Hasse on what we should be looking at and how to go about preparing the land. We have contacted the Greenhouse and processing crops Research Centre in Harrow and we are also waiting on contact information on the student from environmental studies to see if they would be able to assist us in testing the soil. Collectively as a group we have put together a final plan of what we would like to have done for the period of time we have. Within this list of things to do we have:
1. Clean up the yard space
2. Test soil
3. Start seedlings
4. Garden Plans- map of plants and locations
5. Maintenance plan and seed collection
6. Purchase order for plants and equipment
7. Use of irrigation drip lines and rain barrels.
Rod has also suggested to contact Dr. Graniero for more assistance on our project.
In all we have been consistently researching and finding more information on permaculture, water irrigation, and plants that are able to grow in our garden.
