This blog follows the building, cultivating, and harvesting of the Melrose Elementary 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. Melrose Elementary is one of the newest participants in our Garden Education Program.
It was a rainy day at Melrose Elementary but fortunately our plants love the extra water!
These budding plants are great for salads, stay tuned for more sprouts that our volunteers and children have planted!
