Garden Initiative in Progress!
Thank you to Daniel Leonard and Evan Anderson from the UF IFAS Walton County Extension Office for coming out to work with the students from Walton Academy Charter School on their school garden! The Garden Initiative started last season with a thriving garden on campus and students continue to cultivate the initiative with a spring garden this month.
The IFAS, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, team helped with an outline for garden maintenance, harvesting, and replanting throughout the year. The team worked with the students to help them gain an understanding of how and why certain fruits and vegetables were planted and how to best cultivate them for a high yield.
