Schoolyard Garden Construction to Begin in April!

SHED, in conjunction with a nearby elementary school group, has developed a redesign of an old, dilapidated school garden in Orinda, California. The garden will feature raised planter beds for each grade level, as well as border planting composed of edibles, pollinators and habitat to support native birds and insects.  The central feature of the garden will be terraced steps and a shade structure composed of deciduous grape vines on metal cables, allowing sun in the winter/spring and shade in the summer/fall. Construction to begin in early April - stay tuned for photos!
