BUGS BUNNY ISN'T THE ONLY ONE WHO LOVES CARROTS

 

Mrs.  Edith Gerald grabs the carrots before Bugs Bunny!
 
On July 11, 2015, Filbert Street Gardener Mrs. Edith Gerald grab some lovely harvest carrots from her garden plot.  The blueberries are in full bloom, the blackberries are ready to be harvest and the plots are budding with vegetables.  This is the season that all gardeners love to see their garden bloom with fresh vegetables and flowers.  We've created a sweet potato bale under the direction of our host Ms. Kim with straw and compost.  You can experience this excitement if you attend our next Garden Work Day on August 8, 2015.  We're located at 1317 Filbert Street Curtis Bay, Maryland 21226 at 10:00 a.m..

Let's Create a Green Roof

Curtis Bay Elementary Students Create a Green Roof

The rain just washed away into the bay.
 
The rain was absorbed by the Sedum Plants.

 
 
The Curtis Bay Elementary Students received first hands on experience of how Green Roofs worked.
Everyone enjoyed the rain stimulated by the thunder boomers pouring down on the imaginary roof
tops.  The Sedum are plants with water-storing leaves, which makes them the perfect candidate for green roofs.  Green roofs are living roofs that can cool a building, and clean the water and the air.  Sedum can store water from rainstorms in their leaves instead of letting it run off the roof and into the storm drains.
