    GW Composting and Gardening Program
    GW Composting and Gardening Program
    BISC 1007 Food, Nutrition, and Service

    We painted parachute for the planet. It was a great experience and I learned about organizations at GW that do environmental work.

    BISC 1007 Food, Nutrition, and Service

    I sifted soil that had been used to grow plants, and prepared it for reuse. The used soil has to be sifted because it contains remaining plant parts in it. The plant parts need to be removed before the soil can be reused, so it is an important part of the process. It is also very time consuming!

    Oxon Run Community Clean Up & Mosaic Workshop

    We created mosaic of native species. I made a salamander I was really proud of. It was a really fun experience and I'd never been to that area of DC which was great to see. (I added half an hour for transportation)

    BISC 1007 Food, Nutrition, and Service

    I watered the plants and planted tomato seeds! I learned that I should only put 1 seed in each pot, because more than 1 seed means we have to change the pot to a bigger one two early. I also learned that the more compressed the soil is, the easier it is for the seed to latch onto it and grow.
