Activity of the Month

Bronco Urban Gardens is our food justice outreach program. Each month, we will be sharing a sneak peek of the kinds of lessons and activities we use with elementary school children at our school garden sites. 

FRESH FROM THE FORGE

Recipe from the Garden

  • Ingredients: 1 head garlic, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 bunch carrots, 1 bunch beets, 1 bunch rainbow chard, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, ΒΌ cup raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds), sea salt, black pepper

Monthly Tips and Tricks

  • Remove or replace spent annuals.
  • Trim woody or overgrown perennials.
  • Plant winter vegetables before the temperatures start to drop. A good rule of thumb is to get the plants in the ground before Halloween.
  • Direct seed carrots, peas, cilantro, beets and radishes before the rain to ensure good germination.
